As a second-generation Latin American-Canadian, ethnicity, origins, culture, tradition, skin color, value systems, customs, identity, migration, integration, and familial hierarchy and bonds raise vital questions. Large-scale portraiture is the catalyst allowing expression of these themes. I am stimulated to analyze and reconstruct the face. I choose to paint individuals close to meā€”people often ignored and unseen in the history of the painted portrait.

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.
