I like to eat fruits, grapes especially. People suggested that I explore this inclination. So I painted grapes and called them strawberries. This evolved into cooking, painting, gluing and photographing more food. The idea is simple: I’m making a fruit or vegetable pretend to be something else, like we’ll oftentimes pretend to be someone we’re not. I started by saying how easy it is to judge something by its appearance, then shifted to telling stories from my own experiences. I am that zucchini. I want to be a banana. I hope I can be understood fully, loved equally and love others correspondingly. Nothing is fair, but it’ll be all right. Take life seriously, and remember to have a sense of humor.

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.
