I paint from direct observation of natural foliage and cultivated plants, often wandering the aisles of nurseries looking for the forms that speak to me. I have always been particularly drawn to plant iconography and draw inspiration from the paper cut-outs of Henri Matisse. I paint movement, color and gesture, attempting to uncover nuances in the plants themselves. I use color as a vehicle to simulate the energy emanating from nature.

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.
