Painted Clans

O'Sullivan Coat of Arms

Painted Clans are Custom, Hand-painted Contemporary Family Coat of Arms by Irish Artist & Designer Brendan McCarey.

Each crest is researched and redesigned with a modern minimalist style keeping all the original elements that make up the crests. Symbols are hand painted using fine acrylic paint, framed, rubber embossed and signed, producing the perfect wedding gift, birthday or Christmas gift, or treasured family heirloom.

On the back of the frame is a small piece of information about the family history and a column explaining the meaning of each element of the crest. Each Painted crest is unique as it is a one off personalised piece of historical art.
