This imagery is related to an event which happened about four years ago, and how it changed my life forever. I was hit by a motor vehicle while riding my bicycle. The result was a Traumatic Brain Injury (my second to the right frontal lobe). Some of the immediate and continuing effects include loss of math skills, greatly diminished interpersonal/social skills, loss of taste and smell, seizures, emotional instability, depression, sleep disorders, loss of self esteem… I could no longer work as a carpenter/contractor. My life had been physically, mentally, and emotionally torn apart, a bomb had been dropped into my brain. Although different from the past,
I was still able create art. The remainder of my life is dedicated to my art making.

    Very very nice Brad! God most definitely has a plan for you and regardless of your struggles (fallout from your accident), He can make His mercy and grace known through you. Blessings to you in your new endeavor. 🙂

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.
