My work explores expressions of structure as a narrative about tensions in context, culture and identity. Drawn to mapping concepts of wholeness, I abstract, deconstruct and reinterpret elements, reconfiguring associations of character, utility and nature. My aesthetics are largely directed by elements of line and form, steered by intuition and inspired by poetic and whimsical sensibilities. My production techniques are a loose and layered mixture of traditional and experimental processes including mainly sculpting and assemblage.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
