Most people have the misconception that there is little to no place for the arts in the world of hard sciences. Well, Dr. Fe Eleanor F. Pardillo, MD, would disagree as she folds her 10th paper crane as she animatedly tells her story about how she learned origami despite her demanding job as a government physician.

The world of the arts is a realm that only the brave and privileged can venture into. There is so much emphasis on math and sciences that the arts are usually overlooked despite a promising number of artists who share their work in social media and have an online community to bond over their shared passions.

Ever since she was a child, Dr. Fe had a knack for arts and crafts. She enjoyed drawing and scrapbooking in her free time, but she had to put everything aside when she got to medical school.

As a full-time doctor working as the municipal health officer of Consolacion town, northern Cebu, there is little or no time to do other things due to the demands of her job. Despite her busy schedule, Dr. However, Fe still finds time to learn origami, a craft she knew very little about.

“Until back in 2013, after that strong earthquake, my children had more than a month of free time because their school building had to be repaired. I had to find something to entertain them. That’s when I thought of looking for origami videos on YouTube,” she shared.

Two of her four children found origami interesting, and since she had to join them every time they started a project, she got hooked on it too. As she became familiar with the ropes of origami, Dr. Fe starts thinking outside the box and decides to be innovative with her creations.

She took the plunge and started creating bouquets of kusudamas, geometric models, Christmas wreaths, heart-shaped bookmarks, and more!

Dr. Fe’s love of origami has enabled her to connect with her patients and people she encounters in her work. She extends her love of origami to people in her community who have a troubled past, and it has allowed her to connect with them through a shared art.

“I make origami toys that I can share with my pediatric patients in the health center. I have also taught origami with children who are in conflict with the law as well as for those people who have been deprived of their freedom in prison. I also shared the joy and fun of doing origami with recovering drug addicts in our municipality. Indeed, art connects people in such a beautiful and fun way,” she said.

Art has indeed connected everyone in so many ways, and Dr. Fe is an excellent example of that.

With one folded masterpiece after another, she is able to reach out to people in her own unique way, especially those who need guidance.
