Working in multiples is healing. It’s healing to produce an abundance of pieces by using a repetitive and efficient hand-building process. I am fascinated by the idea that while keeping my hands busy, I am able to clear my mind. This, combined with the endurance and dedication to complete each work, fuels my need to create installations that emulate the aesthetics of nature. Reflecting on the relationship between permanence and impermanence, I search for moments of balance in the breakdown of life while experiencing my own balance through a neurological response to a dedicated, repetitive process.

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.
