An Irish designer, Adelle Hickey has had a successful career in the fashion and film industries. Her research work in Design History and Material Culture has inspired the unique collection of cards, notebooks and prints. The inspiration for the series embraces centuries of Irish visual culture – Archaeology, mythology, needlework, Celtic symbols, wildlife and flowers are bound together in a visual expression of all that is authentically Irish.
The Heart symbol is central to her work and pervades the collection.
An individual approach is taken for different themes.
Designs are shaped by, incorporated into, emerge out of or appear to be escaping the heart in their own unique way.
This collection of cards, notebooks and prints, are beautiful gifts for life-designed, hand drawn, hand carved and hand printed in Ireland.
