Ally Arts

Ally was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ, graduating from Arizona State University.¬†The name Sun Devil Woodwork plays homage to Ally’s home state of Arizona and where she ultimately graduated University. Ally grew up in the field of construction, and always had a multitude of scrap wood and tools in her backyard (aka the latest job site). Forced to entertain herself with what she was surrounded by, building small picture frames, chiseling large pieces of rock, and seeing how quickly she could hammer nails into a scrap 2×4 became her barbies and video games.

She started her career working on political campaigns, thriving on the long days and stressful hours, which ultimately led her to Washington, DC. Searching for a hobby after one campaign season, Ally finally decided to follow her father’s footsteps into the world of building. Starting out with a simple circular saw and drill, she built her first table, shocked at her ability. From there, she has continued to push herself and grow in this new field.

From taking apart (but not always putting back together) furniture as a child, to creating beautiful works of art, Ally has embarked on a journey that has truly allowed her to follow her passion. She hopes to create furniture that provides function and style, that is purposeful and useful..that central piece that brings a room together.
