Watercolor and paper on canvas, 2018, 18"w x 20"h

The abstract forms are traces of my experiences in a space influenced by color and composition. When poured, watercolor creates its own shape. After it dries it turns into a stain, and I combine it with collage to develop layers. The paper and watercolor complement each other, and a dialogue happens between the opaque and the transparent surfaces. The subtle difference is a small detail that draws the viewer in. Ultimately, these mediums work together and build off one another.

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.
