Silk artist Karen O'Kane of Kokodesigns shares some of her recent work in progress in her studio in County Donegal.
So glad this collection is getting such a positive response. I'm working away to complete orders then I'll work on getting a print version to add to my range of bamboo print shades. "Seagrass" from the new #shoreline collection. Please see my bio for website link.
A very misty photoshoot at Rathmullan Cottages. I just love sea mist and how it gradually clears through the day. #shoreline
These tiered lights were a best seller last year. Great for halls and landings and as a centrepiece for any larger room ,it's a one silk painting made into different tiers if the shade #kokodesignstudios #kokodesignshome #handpaintedsilk #madeinIreland #madeindonegal
The silk ceiling lights lit, this glow is something else. Also can you spot a floor light at the end of the hall. They are great for the home and public spaces #shoreline #madeinIreland #madeindonegal #handpaintedsilk #kokodesignstudios
I'm just mad for the copper inside the new ceiling shades complimented by the copper detailing on the hand painted silk. I may even make myself one if I get chance #shoreline #handpaintedsilk #madeindonegal #kokodesignstudios

Silk painting challenge for me, the start of my new design for #shoreline collection, I've tried to paint these so many times but now I think I have the base right, fingers crossed it will continue well #kokodesignshome #kokodesignstudios #handpaintedsilk
