Simone McGoldrick is an artist living in the Comeragh mountains in County Waterford. She makes unique handmade cards and watercolour paintings inspired by rural Ireland. She loves to include animals, especially horses and dogs in her designs, as well as colourful flowers and Irish landscapes.
Each of her cards are individually hand-drawn with permanent inks and then painted using artist quality watercolours making them unique gift cards to send, that can also be framed afterwards.
Simone also makes designs using lino and screen- printing techniques, printing each design by hand at home.
Simone has been making cards for family and friends for many years, who all commented “I always keep your cards” which gave her the idea behind original artist quality cards, and the name “Cards to Keep.”
