Each box is carefully selected and turned into a one-of-a-kind art piece using embroidery, assEmblage, and collage.
From the luscious feel of superior materials, to the meticulous attention to detail in each product, luxury houses like Chanel, Hermès, Valentino, and Dior have been producing beautiful creations for generations. Every purchase from these luxury brands comes exquisitely packaged in a beautiful box. The recipient is often hesitant to throw one of these boxes away, as they are a status symbol in and of themselves. Inevitably, the boxes usually go into storage somewhere and are eventually discarded... In my fine arts practice, I create many pieces using materials from luxury fabrics like Hermès scarves, so my studio becomes littered with designer boxes. While working on sketches one day, inspiration struck and I decided to use these boxes as a canvas for my new pieces. The Luxury Series was born.
