My work challenges conventions of color theory, proportions, perspective in figure and portrait painting, but the “imperfections” define a style that is not generic and can easily be identified among a crowded field. I take liberties with values, lighting and contrast, which are often provocative to more classically trained artists. My painting process, if not chaotic, is unstructured, unplanned and unpredictable. I dive right into painting my subject, not knowing what the outcome will be.

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.
