The human technological footprint has left no part of the natural environment untouched. As our technological understanding grows, human tasks become less demanding physically and mentally. There is an increased interest in creating perfect replicas of life that allow us to enjoy an enhanced reality. I am interested in the way people exchange older, slightly inconvenient ways for modern convenience and comfort. Our exploration of robotic mimicry leads to a sense of destruction suggested by a technologically enhanced environment while also creating desire. I combine 3D and 2D animations with hand-drawn and found imagery. The manmade objects are animated to move like elements found in nature, contrary to their original functions. These animations help to create a dialogue between the technology we use and the future of natural landscapes.

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.
