Light + Paper bio:
Ali Harrison is a papercutting artist and owner of Light + Paper in Toronto, Canada. Though she has no formal arts training, Ali fell in love with papercutting after attempting to make one as a gift (using a kitchen cutting board and box cutter). Soon after that she armed herself with the proper tools and founded Light + Paper, where she recreates her hand-cut originals as a variety of lasercut art pieces. Ali uses repeating patterns in her work to represent iconic imagery, her most popular pieces being her organ collection; but also enjoys making small playful pieces with words and animals. Her work has been featured by publications such as My Modern Met, Design Milk, and This is Colossal, and she has created original pieces for the Art Gallery of Ontario and Roots Canada.
