About

One of the most mesmerizing activities from my youth was upsetting rocks to discover the world underneath. It was a slow and careful process, one that I am not embarrassed to admit remains a well practiced labor.

Just waiting.
Watching.
Fast forward twenty years and I found myself engulfed in a world of vegetables and flowers. In 2008 I started die Blumme, a hand cultivated houseplant and cut flower business. Though very short lived, my first entrepreneurial experience reawakened my childhood curiosities.

Creature Crawlers is a fine tuned amalgamation of me.
By molding my "simple" study of nature with my love of photography, I produce a product that pays homage to the Earth and it's smallest inhabitants.
All Creature Crawler designs begin with my personal photography. Each photograph is modified in Photoshop and printed on professional grade heat transfer paper. The images are then hand cut with an X-ACTO knife and heat pressed onto each garment. This technique gives new meaning to the phrase, "There's a bug on your shirt."
Grounded in the belief that all living creatures deserve respect, Creature Crawlers mission is to encourage a dialog:
Hey! Bugs ARE Cool!
Yeah. They most certainly are.

**I am not an entomologist, although I do pretend to be.
