Hi I'm Georgina, the artist behind the brand. All of the fantastical illustrations that you see on the products are lovingly hand drawn from my studio in Dublin 8.
National College of Art and Design alumna, I have been consulted as a lead designer for some of the coolest independents to the biggest international fashion houses. I began to work on my eponymous brand and 2022 saw the launch of my first collection entitled “My Granny’s Garden”, which explores memories of childhood summers enjoying the West of Ireland with my mother, Josephine, who I sadly lost in 2022. I was privileged enough to have shared this body of work with her before she passed.
Today’s world is undeniably digital. New technologies – from social media to artificial intelligence – make the planet we inhabit unrecognisable from 20 years ago. My collections explore a simpler time, exploding with flower and fauna, myths and legends, found and inspired by the rich and wonderful Irish landscape.
Some of our Brand Values:
WE LOVE LOCAL
We create all the fine art prints within Ireland, all photographers/models/suppliers are located in Ireland, supporting local jobs. The silk scarves are 100% designed in Ireland and then crafted in Italy, by the world's leading experts in silk.
Our items are always produced in small quantities. By keeping our production lines limited, we minimise our carbon footprint – lessening the impact on our planet.
LESS IS BEST
At Georgina O'Hanlon Illustration we aim to use the most eco-friendly materials and methods possible. Unlike dyeing, we print direct to fabric, meaning less wasted ink. Where possible, our packaging is fully recyclable.
Our luxury sustainably sourced paper, boasting a shelf life of 80+ years, is printed by a leading carbon neutral Fine-Art Printers. The prints are wrapped in biodegradable bubble-wrap and cardboard packaging.
BUY LESS, BUY BETTER
Accessories matter. They should last the test of time and ours are designed to last and to be passed down the generations.
