Support Irish Makers is a new series by Culture showcasing some of the most talented makers, creators and artists that the country has to offer.

It's now more important than ever for us to support small independent businesses, whether that be by sharing their creations across social media, buying from them or recommending to a friend...

Today's featured maker is Susan Brambell with The Word Bird, specialising in word art as custom designs for gifts and as prints to sell online and in galleries.

Many of Susan's designs feature quirky Irish colloquialisms and references, making them the perfect gift for someone who wants to be reminded of home. Her print The Manky Map has been a huge hit and is composed of hundreds of local sayings and expressions. 

Other designs include a pint of Dublin pub names, a guitar of famous Irish bands, a tent of Electric Picnic acts - and a pair of jeans made up of the names of inspirational Irish women!
