I have always had a strong interest in the human form and isolating certain portions of it. I find it to be absolutely beautiful. I find the odd angles and shapes the body can make especially interesting. I enjoy mimicking these forms and choosing portions to enhance, subdue or remove completely. My vision for this piece comes from a friend who was a dancer. As a child, I would accompany her to dance class every once in a while and watch her practice ballet. She would balance on her toes and her feet would have to be perfectly vertical. Because I also love the feeling of walking around barefoot, I left a rough, dirty texture similar to feet smashing around in mud or sand at the beach.

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.
