In the act of looking, we are seduced by images that provide only clues to what may lie beneath the surface. Inspired by portraiture, couture and the history of painting, I look for ways to expose the concealing nature of an image’s facade. In each painting, the image pleads with the viewer to resolve its ever-elusive form. Savoring the seductive exchange, the viewer and image become entwined in an active portrait of the experience of looking.

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.
