Working on a group show entitled Harvest, I was not involved in developing the theme. Wanting to avoid trite harvest-themed objects, I hit upon the humble tools of the backyard gardener. This developed into You Dig…useless tools with which to dig deeper.


“I like to think creativity at its core is just problem solving and that is how I approach my work. The problems either presented by a client or the needs of my own personal work offer a opportunity at every branch of the problem solving process to make decisions that lead someplace interesting and in a nutshell that is the point.

Let’s go someplace interesting.”
