Conflict, illness and loss are the common denominators and, later, the catalysts that prompted an urgent pursuit of empathy, understanding and relief. A life punctuated by sudden illness, by the unexpected loss of those closest to me and by familial conflicts necessitated that I preserve my own life and well-being. The figures I form with my hands see, feel and embody my pain. They understand my loss for they have seen it too. Balancing the grotesque with occasional humor as a means of therapy, I capture deep emotion and expression in my figurative work.

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.
