I strive to make artwork that questions the boundaries of what is known and what is perceived. By selecting old family photographs as my source imagery, I reinterpret a scene that has occurred; however, my translation of the original image seeks to enhance our understanding of what is unseen or unknown. I am interested in the many variables that change our perception of the people being depicted. I do not want merely to recreate the photos in a new medium; rather, with manipulations of the images and choices made in printing processes, I hope to expose the subjective nature of these photos. Furthermore, I am exploring the effect this unveiling has on my understanding of my family history and my role within it.

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.
