I have always been fascinated by language and the various ways we use it when communicating with each other, whether it be in written, spoken or gestured (hand signals). In my work, I use printmaking—with shape, texture, color, line and textual elements—to explore the world of communication and its different forms because it is similar to the process of transcribing and translating ideas when using spoken, gestured and written language. I also use it to express ideas regarding the definite disconnect that always occurs among humans in the process of communicating.

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.
