Born to a fisherman, I have a strong connection to the ocean, with countless hours at sea accumulated throughout my life. The open ocean is a visual that is burned into my memory. The sea is a force that displays the fluidity of change in an extreme way. In constant motion, the ocean is life-giving and life-taking. A continuous contrast between pleasure and danger. Through my artistic process, I explore the idea of memory and nostalgia as well as the human desire to experience change.

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.
