Through painting I try to materialize the feelings of awe, wonder, calmness and fear that come from being in nature. My interest in the idea of soft fascination–nature as a restorative property to calm anxiety and stress, my interest in the containment of nature in a macro and micro scale–is what fuels my body of work. I pick and choose parts of plants or landscapes that I find visually interesting and enticing based on their aesthetics to come up with unique hybrids. I create worlds or recreate personal memories from my own image sources, images from the Internet or from real life.

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.
