I explore the process of memory creation and how one’s memories are altered by time and experience. Wood grain, personal writing, my own prints, recycled paper and plant matter serve as materials and metaphors for the creation and compression of memory. I create prints and paper composites through the alteration and reshaping of those materials. Processed woods, composed of compressed wood pieces from different trees, serve as representations of how we store and retain memory. The resulting work is intended to reflect the transmutation of individual experience into a culmination of memories, experiences and origins frozen in time like the indexical images created through printmaking.

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.
