Welcome Home

yeiou paper objects artist Abigail McMurray creates custom paper house portraits so that you can have a reminder of a favorite or special home right on the wall to admire every day. These heirlooms capture a home or other building, rendering the details and dimensions in a one-of-a-kind paper sculpture.

Award-Winning Paper Objects

In the 2019 Etsy Design Awards, yeiou’s custom house portraits were chosen as a finalist in the “Creative Collaborations” category, and then also featured as an Honorable Mention when the winners were announced in September.

Architectural Details

Though my focus is on on custom house portraits, I also create other architecturally-inspired paper art featuring windows, doors, and other details that would be too small to capture in a full house portrait.
