Storytelling is key to my artistic practice. As a printmaker and book artist I combine text and image to convey narrative. My “meta-comics,” based on a lifetime of comic book reading, remain outside of the genre in order
to comment on this type of communication. I use the comic convention of the “thought cloud” because this symbol is on the border between image and language. It is universally recognized as a container for interior dialogue. The “thought cloud” is a glyph or shorthand representation of thought that has the effect of giving thought a physicality and location. Often my images treat the “thought cloud” as a character in its own comedy.

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.
