I am a multidisciplinary artist, writer and historian exploring how we can remember, document and share the past while giving it fresh perspective through creative expression.
The Pine Curtain Project
My current primary body of work is the Pine Curtain Project, an integrated folklore project that combines visual art, research and storytelling to document and share cultural and personal histories of Deep East Texas, mostly Angelina County, from the late 1800s through the 1990s.
I make visual art based on independent research, photographs and ephemera found in family, community and government archives.
I write and speak on a variety of topics around Texas folklore and creative heritage projects.

Pine Curtain Confidential launches in September! This East Texas podcast will share supernatural stories, tall tales, histories and mysteries found behind the pine curtain and beyond, and curated from the Pine Curtain Project research notes.
