In my work I combine traditional gender-specific forms layered with text in an effort to explore the way gender is interpreted and defined. I am interested in the language that has formed around gender in the Western world and how it can be limiting to both sexes. Using various materials layered with text, I set up disparate relationships within the work as a means to challenge the suggested inherent qualities of a specific gender.

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.
