I represent in the objects I create the memories I had as a child, using the emotions and feelings that I remember most deeply: shame, excitement, wonder and confusion. I introduce those notions into a piece you can carry with you, as a token or a burden. I want the work to be able to move around the world as freely as I once thought I could, to have the options and opportunities to be connected or attached in different configurations, not to be relegated to a certain area of the body.

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.
