When I look at art objects, I invent a story in my mind to explain their existence. When I create work, the story crystallizes as the object or scene takes shape. My goal for all of my work is to ignite a creative spark in the viewer’s mind. With this piece, I associate the character with a Japanese Shinto-like myth. I grew up reading Japanese fairy tales and watching Ghibli movies, which gave me a glimpse of my mother’s native religion. The fantastic interactions between the spirit and human worlds have stayed with me through the development of my own spirituality.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
