    My work deals with issues of class and expectations of perfection. With Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci and other purveyors of luxury as my inspiration, I explore the outward appearance of the good life by extracting and recreating status symbols and high-end consumer goods. My drawings, paintings, and paper sculptures are about surface, desire and distraction. I am drawn to this subject matter because of my uneasiness and ambivalence about what these status symbols mean to me, and how they function in society.
