New rectangular based hand painted silk table lights. This 'sand dunes" design is in stock and ready for immediate delivery, comes in a wooden presentation box so an ideal gift. #shorelinecollection #handpaintedsilk #madeinireland #madeindonegal

Exciting week in koko land, baby shed joined us, no longer will my lovely, long suffering customers have to fight around silk frames, paintings and all my creative mess, this will be my showroom shed, there is even a fancy "retro yellow" sofa heading towards Donegal. #loghouse #lotsofworktobedone

Sneaked out of the studio today for a little bit of nature, saw my first Golden Eagle at Glenveagh and actually had my binoculars. #beautifuldonegal #dayout #magicmushrooms.

The struggle with ferns continues for me, I've tried these ferns so many times I think I'll be dreaming about them. Its very frustrating that my brush and the silk will not do what I want it to do. #thirdtimelucky # madeindonegal #intothewoods #handpaintedsilk

Working on new collection for the past few weeks. "Into the woods" which will launch in September. This one is based on the Rhododendron found in our woodlands, hedges and gardens. #madeinireland #madeindonegal #handpaintedsilk #intothewoods #bespokehomeinteriors #bespokelampshademaker

Looking at the past few grey days the sunflower blooming is a welcome addition to the garden #comebacksummer #madeindonegal

Back in the studio this morning after a lovely break with the kids, but I was still making. This one still has a little bit of metallic detailing to go on #shorelinecollection #handembroidery #handpaintedsilk #madeinfrance. Taught my eldest to hand embroider as well, he was super addicted and was good for him on long journeys.

Recent hand painted silk wall art commissioned and off to Poland, it always feels such an honour to have your work sit in someone else's house but an added thrill when that house is so far away #handpaintedsilk #madeinireland #madeindonegal
