boutique hotel, 2017
These pieces were made for a boutique hotel that wanted work centered around the great American inventor Thomas Edison and his lightbulb. They also wanted elements to reference the city the hotel is located in, Louisville, Kentucky. I incorporated materials inspired by the natural and cultural landscape of Louisville as well as materials that reference Edison...horses and the derby, bees and hives, feathers for swans, lightbulb filament and 'Made in USA' insignia. The hotel chose the photographs which I printed and stained with coffee for an aged look.
wedding anniversary gift, 2017
This small piece was made for a friend who wanted something as a gift for her husband for their wedding anniversary. I used a print provided from their wedding day and embellished it with elements that would envoke a feeling of a celebration while incorporating natural elements that would remind them of the Lowcountry where they met. The photograph is nestled inside a gold playing card holder with seeds, paper, dried dill flowers and palmetto spines, trim and paper fruit.
modern farmer magazine, spring 2017
These pieces were made for the 2017 Spring issue of Modern Farmer Magazine. I photographed local Charleston farmers on their farms. Each piece is about farming and incorporates elements such as seeds, seed packets, grain stocks, American vintage stamps, carrot greens, vintage labels and paper.
