Faux House/Trompe l’Oeil

The House That Faux Built, 2006, Arlington, Virginia

This faux house project has received nation-wide publicity, showcasing the work of over 100 highly acclaimed artisans. The public viewing of the show house was in May – June 2006 in Arlington, VA. The project is the subject of a book, showing before and after transformations and were featured on HGTV. Proceeds benefited New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina relief efforts through Habitat for Humanity. (My work was in the “Romantic Bedroom”.)
