COMING SOON: Two Become One

It's been a while since we've posted, because we're ramping up to launch our new website!

That's right. This summer, and will become one new mega-site.

What changes will you see?

  • More instructional videos to help you prepare for emergencies
  • More interviews with artists
  • Easier, quicker ways to find the information you need to protect your career
  • A cleaner, visually compelling style: more graphics, less text
  • More ways to connect and network with other artists

Stay tuned for more updates!

I make furniture (you can see my work at and  I have been good about documenting my work with professional photography over the past thirty-five years.  Since most of my work has been sold, what I have left is photographs, mostly 4x5 transparencies, negatives, and slides (along with digital images). If I had a fire, flood, or tornado, this documentation would be difficult, expensive, or impossible to replace. In addition, it would hinder my ability to respond to requests for images from magazines, clients, or for shows.  My business insurance would cover some of the monetary value, but the loss of my images would be devastating.  So, in my efforts to disaster-harden my career,  I focused on my images first.
