I recently travelled to Ireland and framed tiles by Alanna Plekkenpol were on sale at the Malahide Castle Visitor Center. As a collector of Delft, I couldn't resist the charming take on Delft with Irish themes. I purchased FreeWheeling and when I got home, I realized I should have bought two framed tiles. So I purchased Stud Puffin online and I now have a balanced display of Delft plates with the two beautiful and fun framed tiles by Alanna on either side. Perfect!
Found through a recommendation for Irish artists on reddit, an Alanna Plekkenpol tile ended up being just the perfect gift for my middle-aged dad, and is now sitting in a place of pride on the family mantelpiece.
Thank you for your beautiful artwork, and I hope to visit your store again soon for another gift!
