I’m an Irish Designer & Artist based in Monaghan. I recently started a project called Painted Clans. Painted Clans are hand painted contemporary Irish crests. The idea came about as a wedding present for friends living in Australia; I wanted to gift them with something traditional, modern and sentimental and so Painted Clans was born.
Each crest is researched and redesigned with a modern minimalist style keeping all the original elements that make up the crests. Each crest is then hand painted using acrylic paint making it one of a kind. I think a Painted Clan crest would make the perfect Irish made stocking filler.
Irish-made stocking fillers to firstname.lastname@example.org marked ‘Irish-Made Stocking Fillers’ . No fee just a knowing glance.
