Ingrid Menken lived near Deer Isle, Maine on and off since 1981, having spent time there since 1976.

"I came to jewelry from printmaking and drawing. As an undergraduate at Barnard College, I took a few art classes and from 1987 spent more and more time drawing, painting and printmaking. In 1995, I started working with metal--surface texturing, found object sculpture, raising, chasing and repousse, wire baskets, chainmaking and box making."
