The 29-year-old Mademoiselle Maurice, now based in Paris, develops and creates endless colorful works with origami, lace or embroidery.
Arranged both carelessly and in detailed frame-ups, Mademoiselle Maurice attaches thousands of dazzlingly colored origami works to unexpected places, decorating everything from the ceilings of national art museums to the worn sides of ancient buildings.
