I use mythology and fantasy to explore representations of the body, storytelling and power through performance, costume, psaligraphy (the art of cutting out silhouettes) and video. The characters in my work exist at the intersection of the real and the imagined, wherein multiple narratives appear. I explore ways of recontextualizing the body to understand one’s personal mythology and ritual and the plurality in which these can exist. Currently, my work focuses on the representational body and trickster mythology. I am interested in how this archetype can be used to exhibit gender and form variability.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
