I grew up in a steel belt city, around hardworking, earnest people. My visual perception of the world developed by exploring rail yards and staring through the windows of city buses. When I see objects and places of industry, I think of their histories. I imagine the faces behind them, and I’m reminded of my loved ones who were steelworkers, bus drivers, sanitation workers and truck drivers. My work pays homage to them. The lines, textures and vivid colors of their environments mirror the struggle revealed in their imperfect bodies and the lines on their hands and their faces.

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.
