Maggie O'Dwyer is a visual artist living in her native Dublin, Ireland. Maggie's paintings and her cards and prints are inspired by the colours, forms and patterns in nature.


The Botanical Alphabet is a collection of greeting cards and prints based on original paintings in gouache on canvas by Maggie O’Dwyer.

Each card shows a flower or plant framed by the initial letter of its name. On the back of each card you’ll find the common name plus the Latin or Greek botanical name and in many cases the Irish word for the flower or plant. There is a short text about the meaning behind each name and a glimpse into the ancient beliefs or folk traditions that are associated with each plant.

The Botanical Alphabet by Maggie O’Dwyer cards and prints are made in Ireland ~ from the original gouache on canvas paintings right through to being printed here in Dublin.
