W O O D L A N D   P A P E R C U T S   is the design studio of Naomi Shiek (that's me!). 

I am a young secular Jewish woman residing in Israel. I started my professional training in fashion design before shifting course (just slightly) into visual communications. Since earning my bachelors in design from the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design I've been very lucky to be making a living perfecting my papercutting technique & making couples happy.

My papercuts are romantic, original, highly-detailed and time-consuming tactile artworks cut by hand. My style is influenced by regional decorative crafts and European art. My work 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. My papercut ketubot are in the private collection of the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford, and in 2015 were part of an exhibition titled 'Breaking the Glass: The American Jewish Wedding'.
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, Brides, and Style Me Pretty.
