Profile Fields


Tony O'Hare


I am an origami (paper-folding) artist living in Bristol, but originally from South Wales. I’ve folded paper since childhood, and have been a member of the British Origami Society (BOS) since 1973, and have been Chair of the society since 2016. I have created hundreds of my own designs over the years, of various subjects and topics and had 4 booklets of my work published by the BOS. I tend to focus on the natural world and subjects close to me, often with a humorous twist or angle to them. Currently my subjects revolve around Bristol with origami scenes of the city and subjects such as Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep. I also take private commissions, run workshops and classes, and am available for media work, functions and shows. My origami motto is “Keep folding, Keep Smiling” and my website Smiley Origami reflects my approach to this fantastic and flexible art.
