silverpoint and acrylic on wood panel, 2013, 48"w x 48"h

Influenced by pop culture and feminine ideals, my figurative work highlights the mental and physical struggle experienced by young women in the 21st century. Through the use of traditional silverpoint drawing, I attempt to convey moments of uncertainty through body language and negative space, emphasizing the conscious split between our inner and outer selves. The subtle presence of these silverpoint drawings evokes a sense of delicacy and finesse, creating an organic documentation of the passing of time as the silver becomes marked with patina through oxidization.

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.
