Worn under medieval armor, chain mail is made of tiny interlocking metal rings designed to protect a body in motion. I use the chain mail pattern and other woven patterns to create work that conjures up a sense of permanence and concealment. Visually stone-like, the pieces appear strong and impenetrable, belying their inherent fragility.

“White moon rising” came about after a trip to the beach and looking through some old Milton Aveery catalogues. The beach houses facing the ocean had no curtains on their windows therefore I set out to create curtains, with ruffles on the bottom, that captured the outside landscape. Avery’s beach painting served as inspiration for the colors in this series.
