Our 21st century culture is woven with a designer’s thread and the artist’s intention. It asks us to address the fundamentals: who am I and what can I make happen? Since moving into a Zen Buddhist temple, I have been meditating and acquiring discarded objects I hope to redeem. Repurposing the unwanted into aesthetically pleasing and functional objects is my passion. The serendipitous nature of these materials requires the ability to endlessly tinker and fail. Through combining dissimilar materials, I have discovered that open-mindedness frequently leads to creative and successful outcomes. I hope to inspire others and help them recognize the beauty and potential of all the junk we mindlessly create.

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.
