My mission is to spread smiles and create lasting memories through my art. Carmel Grant Designs is where creativity meets celebration, turning moments into keepsakes that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Carmel Grant Designs originally began as Caricatures by Carmel in 2013 and was created from a passion of drawing memories. The love for creating caricatures began on Carmel’s final day of secondary school in Leixlip County Kildare when she drew a caricature of each teacher as a personalised surprise farewell gift. The wonderful reaction of joy her art brought to everyone that day was a memory she always cherished. Today this has developed into the joy of designing humorous personalised gifts for milestone occasions from her studio in Waterford City.

Carmel’s focus is on the customer, bringing them on the journey through the design process to see their design come to life as a cartoon. The objective is always to design unique keepsakes, each cartoon caricature is original, and designed to bring happiness to customers for some of the most important of times in their lives.

Ordering a custom hand drawn caricature artwork, illustration or design is an easy process guided by Carmel. She offers a range of products ranging from caricature guest signing boards, wedding and event stationery, framed personalised gifts and digital designs for marketing materials. All that is required are clear photographs and details of what personal information to include, and Carmel will capture a memory creating a keepsake.
