I play with documents, texts and images. In the studio I transfer, layer,  juxtapose and rewrite.  I teach myself to read and see documents in new ways. I also transfer and layer my background in painting and printmaking with my career as a librarian and study of history.

Choosing makes a Story. Holding all possibilities open keeps the pieces of the Story in the Archive. The power and possibility of the documentary human record rests between Archive with its too many meanings and the exclusionary scripting of Story. I move back and forth between these two but my aim is not to reach either as a final destination. Instead I try  to learn from each journey how to make the next.
