To work with the landscape is to bring the landscape with you when you leave it. My work is about the time spent in a place. It is about the emotional and physical tax of moving, breathing and touching within a space. The accumulation and erosion of paint within my work mirrors these phenomenological experiences within the landscape and forms an image that is tangibly linked to bodily sensations. These paintings function as more than realistically rendered images of nature. They are talismans of memory and emotion, nostalgia and desire.

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.
