Chainmaille, pet portraits, and fire dancing by Katherine Deschain.
The art of chainmaille has deep roots in cultures around the globe. From Gallic warriors to Japanese Samurai, rings and scales of metal were used to craft armour for defense in battle. I take inspiration from this history to create wearable works of art with a modern touch.
Pets are family, and having the honor to capture their personalities on canvas is a great privilege. I take great pride in the pet portraits I have had the opportunity to create for many happy friends and customers.
