Karen O’Kane is a textile artist, hand painting silk with a cold resist technique and using the steamed silk to make a range of home furnishings including lampshades and a unique range of fashion garments and accessories. Karen comes from the Potteries in England where her grandmother, a skilled artist, introduced her to a wide variety of crafts.
After studying psychology at Edinburgh University, Karen used these crafts in her work before settling in Ramelton, Co Donegal and establishing kokodesigns studio in 2010. Karen’s designs are bold and vibrant and are inspired by her love of her natural environment, the unpredictability and texture of the medium and previous experience of glass art.
