My work combines ideas about art, architecture and science. It is my hope that an interdisciplinary approach will articulate new ideas about form and space. I aspire to realize these projects in three dimensions in a variety of scales. People are key to this exploration by representing the figure abstractly through the lens of architecture. The scientific process of observation provides a methodology to generate topographical surfaces in two and three dimensions. I channel observations between form-based drawing and sculpture through an intuitive response to materials. I draw from the models, and model what I draw as an experimental and reciprocal approach that generates new shapes
by moving between mediums.

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.
