Artist's Statement: Selling Copy I am inspired by illusion. It is the cornerstone of my technical process and a catalyst for my conceptualization. My artwork is an amalgam of objects that reflect an imitation of reality. As a whole, they represent a relationship between the domestic and the natural world. Under the surface, they suggest that anything in life can be misunderstood. Their physical appearance belies their actual material nature, much as the objects they represent belie their waste and convenience. This notion of deception is important to me as it resonates with everything I find dishonest, contrary, and generally lacking integrity. I am not trying to find a solution, but simply commenting on that which I observe.
