In this ongoing body of work I seek to explore the character of the contemporary urban landscape through painting. The layers of organic and geometric forms, patterns of color and texture, lines of architecture, roads and hydro wires express a sense of place shaped by a history of urban transformation. I am drawn to the spaces and structures that have served and survived generations but have become overlooked or entirely forgotten. They are pieces of the urban narrative so often lost to time and “progress.” Through a responsive and gestural application of material, my aim is to express the personality of these frequently disregarded historical facets, fixing them in time.

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.
