A brand new concept store, Maison Myrtle & Mary has opened at
154 Walton Fine Arts.
Myrtle & Mary is a young maximalist luxury brand created by Belfast based artist & designer Carrie Neely. Myrtle & Mary were the names of Carrie’s grandmothers, and she loves to think of them creating their own kind of heaven, wherever they are.
Each character is based on a family member, a friend, or is the product of a personal memory or experience, and each character has a colourful story to tell.
Carrie graduated with a BA Hons degree in visual Communications from art college in Belfast in 1997, and although she has a successful art consultancy and art gallery in Belfast called Art Loves, this is the first time in over 20 years that she has created something for herself.
Carrie says “Myrtle & Mary feels so utterly indulgent to me…I get lost when I am in their world…hours can go past without me noticing. I really love creating new artwork and products, and am looking forward to taking this journey with Myrtle & Mary”.
