While sculpture is conscious of permanence, I try to create installations that are temporary and reflect the nature of the material or object I am referencing, usually the constructed environment and its tendency to become detritus. Wood is my primary source of inspiration and my material of choice when building and sculpting. I typically use found wood, usually leftovers from a construction site or from an old backyard fence that has been torn down. By using materials from a specific place or site, my work automatically assimilates with that from which the materials originate. In a way, the materials become an extension of life for the structure they once were, like a documentation of their passageway into another purpose.

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.
