Partially biographical, each relief sculpture is meant to represent one of the five stages of childhood development: trust, ego, connections, values and identity. While these stages are not always universally agreed upon, they generally encompass the changes occurring mentally and physically between the ages of 0 and 16. Through humor and iconography, my intent is to call attention to the different values we adopt as we mature. Values pertaining to violence, indulgence, sexuality and consumerism are most intriguing to me, and through a playful artistic practice, I investigate how we become the people we are today.

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.
