I investigate how we perceive, negotiate and interpret the spaces we inhabit. I am interested in the language of abstraction in painting’s expanded field. Using a pictorial way of looking at the world, fragments of clumsy, overlooked, and hidden parts of the city are distilled into a richly colored language. Each artwork responds to fragments of architectural space; covered graffiti, vacant lots, and dirt piles connect with the history and language of abstraction. Employing modest materials such as paper mâché, acrylic and latex paints, I work through a circular process of collage, painting and sculpture. Through this type of unplanned journey, I find a way to monumentalize the un-monumental.

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.
