‘The Key to Freedom’: my new collection of silk scarves

We all want to be free of something – free of pain, free of mortgage, free of doubt. The idea for my new collection of scarves – which is based on four original paintings – came when I found myself wondering what makes us free. It was during the restrictions of lockdown that I realised it’s always possible to be free in your mind. When we’re balanced, playful and connected to nature, we can be present in the moment and forget about our problems. Produced in Italy in the softest crepe de chine, this new range tells the story of...

The Unexpected Turns of Art

The Unexpected Turns of Art

I was delivering one of my paintings to a collector of my art recently. She kindly invited me into her home where I was admiring all the artwork on her walls. One painting in particular, pictured below, caught my eye, a big colourful one depicting people at a wedding reception. The style felt familiar, and when I saw the signature everything became clear. The painter, like me, was Polish. We took it off the wall and looked at the back - it was covered with children’s signatures and at the bottom was the title: “Jasiek się żeni” or “Johnny is getting...

I guess I was busy with studying, working, travelling, socializing & looking for my identity…    I moved to Ireland in 2005, when I was 7...

KEEP THE INNER CHILD ALIVE

KEEP THE INNER CHILD ALIVE

I think it’s important to try and hold the idea of a child’s free soul close to you and never let it go. Children are so pure and free – they see beauty in the smallest of things, and they live fully in the moment; they are not concerned with how they are seen by others and this gives them great freedom. As we grow older, we learn how to please others and then we slowly lose our inner child. We get so tangled up in the grind of daily adult life we forget how to be playful, how to...

Jokamin awarded the best product at the Glucksman Craft & Design Fair 2019!!!

  This was my 4th fair at the Glucksman Art Gallery in Cork. I always look forward to it as the Glucksman is such a beautiful space to show and sell my work in. Every year the Glucksman jury gives awards for several categories including the best product, the best newcomer and the best stand. And it’s funny because I totally forgot about it this year. So, you can imagine my complete surprise when I heard that I received an award for the best product in the fair! I’m not saying this to show off or brag but to say...
