The primary focus of my current body of work centers on the limitations of culturally developed ideals and norms in Western society. My materials vary in origin, from art and construction supplies to domestic materials. Presented in tandem, they create a dialogue about disparity and similarity among gendered objects. Within the work, questions of identity play out through a layering of materials, text and visual imagery that provokes fractures in conventional narratives of power.

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.
