"Drawing with Scissors"

Hello! I'm Megan Jewel and I'm a New Orleans, Louisiana based artist creating cut-paper illustrations, thoughtful handmade cards, and unique paper goods. Inspired by traditional folk art and storytelling, the creation of my artwork has become a journey of whimsical characters and places that come to life from tiny pieces of cut paper. Each handmade card is typed out on one of my old Royal typewriters and then finished with hand-cut pieces of vibrant Lokta paper, vintage papers, or even maps. My collection of cut-paper illustrations are meant to spark joy and inspire storytelling wherever they may go.

A native of Buffalo, New York, I received a B.S. from Ithaca College in Cinema & Photography, which has continued to influence my desire to tell stories through my artwork. In addition to my paper illustrations and cards, I also create custom invitations with an emphasis on unique original artwork. When I'm not working in the studio I enjoy outdoor photography, cooking, riding my bike, and trying to play the banjo.

Thank you for visiting!

All of my cards and collages are made by hand by in my New Orleans studio. I use mainly colorful Lokta papers from Nepal (a sustainable material) when cutting out my collage shapes, as well as found papers and maps. I have an extensive button collection that's been passed down through generations of crafty ladies, and I love to incorporate those unique embellishments into my designs. I use acid-free, nontoxic glue to complete my collages. When possible, I use recycled materials for packaging, and brown-paper recycled envelopes are always available upon request.

Every card is made by hand, from the shapes that are cut to the type that is written out on my vintage Royal typewriter. While I may make several similar cards of the same design, each card is guaranteed to be unique and one of a kind.
