About the Author
HIROMI HAYASHI was born in Japan in 1963. While she loved origami just as much as any Japanese child would, it was not until her beloved daughter was hospitalized that she found that origami can encourage others. Just then, she encountered a book called Origami Kyoushitu-Hana -meaning paper-folding classroom for flowers-written by Dokuotei Nakamura, and was fascinated by the art of turning origami paper into flowers. She has been creating various flowers in her own style ever since, and now resides east of Tokyo, in Chiba City.

Love the flowers but not being an expert, I ran into problems with the instructions and the detail. Fortunately, help was available on the internet. By following youtube on the dahlia, I was able to complete the folding. Some of the instructions skip over what may be "obvious" to the author, but not intuitive for me. Makes for a bit of a struggle. Finished flowers are very nice. The illustrations are well done.
