My recent work has taken the base discipline of drawing and expanded it into a much larger context. I am committed to creating my own interdisciplinary practice through which work flows back and forth in many different directions. Oscillating content between mediums leads to the possibility of multiple remixes, creating an ever-branching system that expands toward infinity. This is mediated by various technologies: cutting-edge and obsolete, mass-produced and handmade, analog and digital. The result is a highly layered and complex image inspired by custom, high-gloss auto paint jobs.

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.
