Hello There!

Thanks for stopping by Rachael Grainger Design and Illustration. I’m a creative practitioner with over 20 years of professional experience creating, licensing and selling colourful uplifting artworks for all areas of the surface design industry.

I love to share my creative expertise with other people too, and I enjoy facilitating creative workshops around Ireland and running our local Athea Kids Art Club…..inspiring a future generation of creatives.

Illustration and Design

Rachael Grainger Portfolio

Ideas are great, stimulating sparks of joy & giddiness in the belly!

Working directly with you, the client, I bring these ideas to life visually, either freelance or to commission. Creating designs for greetings and stationery, homewares, books, editorial, textiles, children’s apparel and anything in between.

Contact me to discuss your illustration needs or to license any existing unpublished artwork.

House Portraits


A perfect gift for every home.

Christmas, new home, wedding, anniversary, birthday or perhaps you just deserve a treat! Whatever the occasion, a bespoke illustration of a home makes a delightful and thoughtful gift. The inclusion of the beloved family pet makes them all the more special!

Commissions also accepted to illustrate other buildings and commercial premises, such as Cafe’s, Shops, Heritage Sites, and Community Buildings.
