I have a deep interest in age and decay, and the role of decomposition in bones is obvious. The journey that these objects take through time is incredibly interesting to me, and I enjoy adding to their stories with new contexts. My work often contains natural motifs, and I am interested in the relationship between organic forms and the static nature of metal. My metal casting techniques represent a reclamation of industrial processes for the purpose of art; representing natural forms through this process deepens that relationship.

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.
