I come from a mixture of urban and agrarian backgrounds where manual labor—skillfully working with one’s hands—has been a way of life for generations. Consequently, I am very interested in handiwork and its opposite: cheap, mass-produced commodities. My artwork explores that dichotomy by physically suturing together the random, disposable detritus of middle-class life in a craftsman-like manner—with attention to detail, finishing and structure—making for sculptural work that has an aberrant quality, something both new and old, junky and refined.

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.
