Ali Harrison is the founder of Light & Paper and the success of her art has an interesting back story. On her website, Ali shared how one fateful day in December when, in search of a unique Christmas gift, she decided to try a new craft. Using a borrowed box cutter and her kitchen cutting board, Ali created her first papercutting. After falling in love with cutting paper, she armed herself with a sharper blade and an actual cutting mat, and Light & Paper was born. At first, all Light & Paper items were hand-cut originals – but when it was near impossible to keep up with orders, Ali decided to begin lasercutting her designs. This success brought her to opening an online store and a physical shop in Toronto, Canada. Ali never considered herself as the artsy one. In fact, she admits being 100% self/internet-taught.
