My Face of Fabric (Series 1-4)

Cotton fabric and makeup, 2016, 10"w x 14"h (each)

As a young female growing up I battled with low self-esteem and confidence. Makeup became a coping mechanism and a way in which I could finally start to accept myself. I am interested in exploring and using a nontraditional medium to communicate notions of femininity. My work is raw and vulnerable; I question and confront the female body through the application of makeup as a sculptural medium. I try to connect personally to the audience, and what they then do is take away acceptance. They accept me as I am, accept my body and accept themselves as they are.

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.
