Ben Coleman has been hooked on origami since his father first brought home an origami book to share with his family at Christmas in 1974. His hobby kicked into high gear in 1996, when he left his teaching career and made the creation of origami bonsai a new way of life. Ben's revolutionary approach to the art inspires his continued creation of origami bonsai botanical sculptures. His life has become focused on sharing the history, the beauty and the simplicity of this traditional art form with others.
