Playing with the intimate relationship between text and textiles, I am translating automatic journals and redacted texts into knitting. This body of work acts as a codified record of time and myself. Time becomes a material in a process that centers on the acts of repetition and contemplation. The writings and knit paintings are both created using a similar system of automatic, intuitive color selection and form, contrasting one another in their scale and labor. Found objects, family heirlooms and oral stories all affect what I write. I am overcome with an insatiable desire to uncover myself and yearn for the family I never met. I am trying to make sense of myself and my life by using the repetitive acts of writing, covering and stitching.

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.
