I am greatly influenced by the Japanese tradition called wabi-sabi, which is a murky state when things become blurry, vague or attenuate in quality. There is a beauty in things that are imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. In this state life becomes modest and humble. I am drawn to the raw beauty of natural materials because these materials play a huge role in my work. I am very interested in how nature has a way of taking life from, and giving life back to, the earth. It symbolizes the universe being sacred and divine and represents the infinite nature of energy.

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.
