Environments make me curious: They shape my ideas, and later, the craft I apply. I develop and change narratives in response to established systems by subverting expectations, materiality and context. I look for quiet moments of awe and ambiguity to help me think about history and the mystical in the everyday. Heightened sensibilities might follow where chance encounters mix with emotion and the unattainable is captured in form. Assumptions are reinvented and suddenly the mundane becomes unfamiliar. Through multiples, common objects and handcrafting, my practice speaks to the nuanced poetics of basic human connections and our natural and manufactured dualities.

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.
