My name is Catherine Dunne, I’m an artist and am passionate about nature and the environment. Originally from Portmarnock in County Dublin, I’ve been based in County Galway for a number of years, just outside Kinvara and close to the Burren.
I hope you enjoy my greeting cards. They are printed in Ireland and are eco friendly and premium quality. There is also a number of illustrated children’s books about nature that I have written and illustrated.
The designs feature my drawings, paintings and photography with a bit of a quirky sense of humour! All of my work is inspired by nature. Everything is made in Ireland and is kind to the environment.
There are a number of greeting card collections:
- Cartaí as gaeilge
- Ireland Collection
- Mammy Card Collection
- Wedding Collection
- Irish Thankyou Cards
- Irish Sympathy Cards
- Irish Birthday Cards
- New Baby Cards
My passion for the environment
This short video was created by Max Barry and Dara Fine and gives an insight into the inspiration behind my children’s books and ‘save the world’ range of greeting cards.
Feeling the love!
I love that my cards are handwritten and sent from one person to another. I feel that there is nothing as nice as a handwritten card, especially these days when everything has become so immediate with texts and emails. A handwritten card arriving through the letterbox is more than paper, it’s a thought, something that shows that somebody took the time to sit down and write to you. That’s what I love.
The greeting cards are printed on FSC certified paper. This means that forests are sustained and trees are replanted. All cards are blank inside for your message and come with an environmentally friendly, recycled, brown Kraft envelope. They come unwrapped as I cannot justify wrapping them in single use plastic.
All cards, prints and children’s books are made in Ireland.
I hope you enjoy them.
