I am based in the picturesque Donegal village of Ramelton, where I've worked as a textile artist for many years in a studio in my garden. I specialise in hand painted silk which I use to make colourful pieces for the home especially lighting and lampshades. My work is inspired by the flora, fauna and beautiful landscapes around me in County Donegal. I love to work in bold and vibrant colours which are reflected in my colourful garden design which is my other passion.


Originally from the Potteries in England where my grandmother, a skilled artist, introduced me to a wide variety of crafts which I still use including embroidery and sewing

After studying psychology at Edinburgh University, I used art and crafts in my work in many different settings and in 2010 I settled  in Ramelton, Co Donegal and established kokodesigns studio.

Fortunately in recent years I’ve been able to pass on my skills by facilitating workshops in the community.
