Could be her proximity to the Redwoods, but Macey undoubtedly sees the rustic beauty of wood—then takes it a cut above. Having acquired a garage full of power tools and a whole bunch of sawdust, Macey transforms raw pieces of wood into deft cutouts that reveal floral silhouettes and handpainted signs scripted with endearing messages. What started as an exploration of stencils and paint led to experimentation with routers and saws. Each new tool paves the way for a new technique and art form. Wonder what she’ll drill into next.
