My work references the everyday world while questioning the illusion of reality. In my practice I investigate typologies associated with materials and process. The seductive surfaces, minimal forms, and appropriation of materials create a familiarity which has to be sought out but is not instantly recognizable. Some forms allude to ordinary objects and are often stand-ins, others are in fact found objects that are reduced or added to. I layer and combine these relationships to engage the viewer in conversations that question how we perceive our environment and the objects around us. I am not interested in illustrating a singular idea but rather creating a setting for dialog between the viewer and my work to exist.

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.
