My work challenges a conventional framing of the landscape by interrupting the photographic frame with ephemeral sculptures and collage. Line, shape and color are inspired by the particulars of place, combined with the kinetics of elemental forces. Whether confronting the new and unfamiliar in a place that I am passing through or revisiting a favorite thicket or beach, I am continually compelled by the tension between elucidation and obfuscation inherent to photographic representation.

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.
