Wall art with a difference
HAND-PRINTED ILLUSTRATIONS ON TILES INSPIRED BY DUTCH DESIGN
Alanna creates art on tiles. Her wall art designs are a playful and humorous take on traditional Dutch Delft Tiles. Every design features playful details, in which traditional Dutch Delft Blue patterns contrast with modern elements using a combination of digital illustration and collage.
All products are designed and hand-finished by Alanna in her home-studio in Bray, Co. Wicklow.

Alanna Plekkenpol launched her eponymous brand of hand-printed illustrated tiled wall art in 2016. Inspired by her dual Dutch/Irish heritage, Alanna’s designs combine elements of traditional Dutch Delft blue and her own signature style of illustration. The texture of the humble glossy ceramic tile forms the base on which she creates her designs- continuing the Dutch tradition of storytelling through tiles. The decorative tiles are available as unframed and framed wall art.
Alanna’s work has received awards, including ‘’Highly Commended in the Home Category’’ at the Showcase Awards 2018 and the Future Makers Overall Award in 2015. In 2019, Alanna was selected to join the highly competitive Design Ireland program run by the DCCoI (Design and Craft’s Council of Ireland).
