Using the blistering West Texas sun to expose cyanotype, an alternative photographic process, I “tattoo” historic handwriting, vintage graphics, and grassland specimens into fabric, paper and painted wood panels.  Compositions are rich in ephemera form early American history and landscape.  Primary documents used in my work come from the archives at Women’s Rights National Historical Park, American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress and Eleanor Roosevelt Paper Project.  I earned my BFA from University of Minnesota and my MFA from University of New Mexico and currently serve as an Associate Professor of Art at Texas Tech University.
