I am obsessed with drawing birds at the moment, in saying that I find them a real challenge! This lamp shade took me a month to complete, painting straight on to fabric is a real challenge in its self, the fabric bleeds and absorbs all the paint leaving watermarks. Once I had painted a few coats it made it a lot easier to create more detail. Now this lamp is in my living room and I look upon it with an eye of love and painful memories.


The talented bespoke designer Tamara Maynes is no stranger to the Mokum design studio. We love Tamara’s work and have commissioned her to create loads of props for our events, displays and photoshoots.
