'I collected my beautiful painting ("Ship Ahoy") this morning - it's even more beautiful in life than online' - Martina Boyle, Ireland
'I first saw Joanna’s artwork on a trip to Ireland in the summer of 2018 when I was researching my historical novel. The main character, who was a real person, was born in Ireland. My best friend and I had lunch near the Blarney Castle and Joanna’s artwork adorned the walls of the café. I was immediately taken with her art and bought a piece on the spot. Soon after I learned of her silk scarves. I have the Marionettes scarf, which I absolutely love, and I’ve bought other scarves and prints for myself and friends and family. In celebration of the publication of my novel, I commissioned an original piece of art from Joanna, and what she created is so meaningful. She also had silk scarves made from the artwork and they’re gorgeous. Joanna is a beautiful soul and I know a part of her soul is in every piece she makes.'

'For me, truly great art tells you its story while allowing you to tell it your own story. This is how I feel about Joanna's art. I have followed her work for years and there was always this one particular piece ("Marionettes") that I felt especially connected to. I believe that Joanna's story and my own converged at the right moment for her to let go of the piece and for me to take it in and I now have the great joy of seeing this original piece hanging in my home.'

'I just received your painting in the post today and I’m very pleased with it. It looks great. I’m an artist myself and I like to collect other artists’ work. Your work is really fresh and inspiring'
Eugene Worrall, Ireland
'I received my order safe and sound. I am so delighted with the beautiful scarf and print – truly the most beautiful things I have bought in a long time. I bought the Marionettes to mark my birthday and also the lockdown as I think we are all a bit like marionettes at the moment with the restrictions. I couldn’t resist the print of the country girl, reminded me of my childhood days growing up in South Tipperary. Beautiful packaging too. Thank you for such beautiful arty pieces and I look forward to getting something from you again in the future.'
Anne Scally, Ireland

'This Self-Love cushion gives me permission to have a doll or teddy bear as an adult. It brings back the long forgotten feeling of comfort and security as a young child, when it was acceptable to hold onto ones doll or teddy bear'
'Absolutely magic to wear' ('Lullaby' scarf)
'I bought Trinity scarf in the RDS/Dublin . I love it and wear it often . It is a gift to myself every time I wear it.'
'My beautiful 'Oh La La' scarf arrived this morning. Fantastic yellows and autumnal colours with navy! I love it!'
'My order has arrived and I am very pleased with it. I love the print and the colour is very flattering, it's beautiful on. It will be one of my favourite things.' (silk scarf "Marionettes")
'I am delighted with my new Jokamin scarf. I chose the beautiful "Marionettes" limited edition design. What drew me to this scarf was the symbolism behind these endearing characters on strings . The scarf feels exquisite to touch, made from luxurious 100% Silk crepe-de-chine. I also love the colour palette; moody blues with pops of white , mustard yellow and vermillion . They suit my wardrobe and enhance any outfit.'
'I first came across JOKAMIN items in Atrium , Powerscourt Town Centre, Dublin. My first purchase in the brand was "Marionettes" ,a large silk scarf with beautiful greens and greys. The silk is a beautiful quality. It is my favourite scarf. I love wearing it. My daughter has requested that I leave it to her in my will !! I then purchased the "Oh La La" silk scarf in the large size. I love the mustard colouring in this piece . It gives a lovely lift to my winter wardrobe. On exploring www.jokamin.com, I enjoyed all the art work. I like the stillness in the images, so I bought the art book, an art doll "Past Present Future" and a print" Lullaby for a girl" I recommend looking at the website. It gives a comprehensive view of all the work available from this prolific artist and also an insight into her life.'
'I have been waiting for Joanna to unveil her newest form of Art and the wait is finally over..Ta-da!! Here they are in all their beauty, original Art on silk scarves..... I chose "Marionettes" and I could not have been more pleased with my purchase. I love and collect different pieces of Joanna's work, many which are close to my heart. I have always loved the painting "Marionettes" so I already had my heart set on this particular scarf. I love the colors used in the painting and now they are perfectly translated into wearable art. The feel and quality of the silk is beautiful and it has a nice weight to the fabric. The size is nice and generous and you can wear it in a variety of ways. If you fall in love with a design you should purchase one.. You will be happy that you did!!!'
'I am delighted with my beautiful Irish/Polish/Japanese 'Marionettes' scarf. The design is quirky and original and the quality and finish are superb. The personalised packaging is a lovely touch.'
'I have long been an admirer of Joanna's work and when she branched out into designing scarves I was very excited. I purchased a large sillk scarf called 'Jesters' for its lovely vivid colours and joyful images - it is a scarf that makes me smile even when it is not being worn as it hangs on the back of my bedroom door bringing a little bit of Joanna's quirky world into my daily life! I enjoy the functionality of art and fashion working together and congratulate Joanna for managing to combine the two in a simply stunning high quality scarf that I know I will treasure forever.'
