Looking at wooden engraved detailed, absolutely frame-worthy cut-paper compositions, it would be easy to assume the Toronto-based maker had a long history (and solid formal training) in the arts. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. “I actually have no artistic training or background,” Ali says. After receiving a masters in community development and adult education, she stumbled across paper cutting while searching for DIY Christmas gift ideas online and decided to give it a try.
“The first wood cutting I did, I used my kitchen cutting board and a borrowed box cutter, and I quickly fell in love with the craft,” Transforms your children's drawings into Personalised engraved wooden plaque "geographic coordinates" keyring 16x66mm at an affordable price. “Honestly, the thing that most appealed to me was the fact that I immediately felt like I was pretty good at it,” Ali says. Less than a year later, she opened her Etsy shop, Light + wood, and today Ali has expanded her range to include laser-cut ornaments and cake toppers, intricate wall hangings and pop-out 3D cityscapes, in addition to the original freehand-cut art pieces she has made since day one.
