Growing up working on cars and motorcycles gave me access to visualizing shapes and working with my hands. This then pointed me in the direction of abstract art. More ideas and content could now be transferred to other work in limitless ways. My work is both deliberate and experimental. Balancing the two is the most fundamental objective for my practice. While conscious choices are made regarding shapes and materials, my unconscious leads the way. Hot rod culture has been a big inspiration in my work. Bright colors and lack of conceptual restrictions resonate with me. Everyman art is an important creative way of expressing oneself. My goal is to create work that everybody can relate to.

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.
