ABOUT

WOODLAND PAPERCUTS is the design studio of Naomi Shiek (that's me!).

I am a young secular Jewish woman. Half Dutch, half Israeli, I grew up in Israel and lived in Holland myself for a year when I was 18.


I started my way in fashion design before shifting course (just slightly) into visual communications. Since earning my BA in design from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design I've moved to the big city, stopped sleeping, and began making a living perfecting my papercutting technique. 

My papercuts are romantic, original, highly-detailed and time-consuming tactile artworks cut by hand. My style is inspired by nature, featuring forest scenes, floral arrangements and noble animals. 


My art has travelled to the corners of the world, from Canada to Australia. My papercut illustrations and wedding stationery are sold at Woodland Papercuts on etsy, and you're also welcome to contact me for bespoke commissions!  

I am listed in Oh So Beautiful Paper's Designer Rolodex, the Wedding Invite Love directory and featured in Invitation Crush's look book of the best invitations designs
You can read more about me in Dearest Nature Inspire Series interview, Pikaland's artist interview and Etsy's featured seller article, and see my work featured in several wedding magazines and design blogs like Martha Stewart's Real Weddings and Style Me Pretty.
