Coming from the dense and ecstatic terrain of the Pacific Northwest, I have, from an early age, paid close attention to landscapes, rooms and objects that seem to resonate most clearly. As an artist, I feel myself placed in the position of the professional observer, compelled by a fascination with hierarchies in the day to day. My work lives in references to everyday objects, considering how an amplification of, or a focus within, that reference may deepen our understanding of it. Through drawing and sculpture, my work utilizes the familiar to emphasize the radical.

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.
