My work concentrates on weaving with different techniques and creating structures out of weavings. I see similarities in woven structures and architectural structures; in fact the first modes of shelter were interwoven plants. It’s not always the literal interpretation: Sometimes it’s how we feel toward certain spaces. Certain elements of structure inspire me and capture my attention, like inserting glass blocks in brick walls, grills above windows, columns, open spaces and in-between spaces.

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.
