My artistic practice is a reflection of my religious and cultural upbringing in Chihuahua, Mexico. I was raised in the Catholic faith within a polygamist Mormon community. At an early age, I understood the importance of accepting different religious practices. I saw that while the specifics of various faiths were different, all placed a strong value on ritual. In addition to the rituals that shaped my religious practice—such as prayer, communion and confession—I developed rituals, including my artistic practice, in the secular aspects of my life.

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.
