I come from an urban and agrarian background where manual labor has been a way of life for generations. I relate strongly to the blue-collar work ethic. I draw influence from the manufacturing trades as well as the intersection of domesticity and industry. I am very interested in handiwork and its opposite: cheap mass-produced, disposable commodities. Daily life relies on a mixture of both kinds of these manufactured goods, and we maintain different connections and attachments to each of them. I am intrigued by the dichotomy of the crap we purchase without thinking (and rid ourselves of once it is used up) and the things we hold on to and treasure because they are well made or sentimental.

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.
