Very Happy

Milwaukee Award

“This artist’s manipulation of chain mail mesh, a material associated with protection and defense, into stylish pieces of wearable art is marvelous. The soft bends and folds of the forms add an unexpected subtlety of design to the works. The accenting details and clean designs combine to give each piece an overall elegance.”

Milwaukee Lakefront Festival of the Arts Award, 2008

Thanks.       Susan
