2012, Chipboard, nylon twine, 5"w x 20"h x 1.5"d

I create wearable art jewelry that stems from memories and drawings and explores the relationships that I share with people, materials and objects from my past. I am specifically interested in the role I have inherited within a family of craftspeople and heightening the beauty and practicality of the industrial materials I was surrounded by as a child. My use of jewelry is important as it activates the physical and emotional attachments to these sensory experiences when worn on the body, and in turn becomes activated when encountered by both wearer and viewer.

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 2020 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 for another year, 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.
