This cancer victim includes the viewer in the space of the painting. Using the mirror, she conveys a message: You could be one of us. The model that I used for this series of paintings has inspired me to come up with the ideas behind every piece. Shahrzad was fighting with cancer, and her story can be felt through each painting. Before she passed away, she founded a charity to raise awareness for bone marrow donations. My wish is to raise awareness and inspire more people to join the bone marrow registry and save lives before it’s too late.

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.
