Hi! My name is Ney.
I’m a museum and arts educator, with an MA in Museum and Gallery Education. I have taught all age groups in museums and galleries, in both London and New York.
Recently I found a passion for illustrating and craft making, so I started creating inspiring hand-drawn paper toys for children. You can find them in my Etsy shop, PaperCuriousShop.
I am entirely self-taught. I draw all of my templates by hand to create original templates and designs. My pieces are influenced by museum collections and all things vintage. Pencils, tracing paper and a light box are my favourite tools. Stories, myths and whimsy are my inspiration.
I hope my paper adventures will transport your families to new worlds. Through these original, illustrated designs your children will engage their imaginations and create beautiful, interactive crafts.
