About My Library

This is my personal library. I've catalogued fewer than half of the books. I keep whittling away at them.

About Me

In my work life, I'm a visual resources curator-turned communications specialist for an academic art department. I'm also the assistant editor for Muscogiana, the journal of the Muscogee Genealogical Society (based in Columbus, Georgia). I have degrees in studio art, art history, and library and information studies. When not at work, I research and write about southern history, especially the history of my ancestors, and embroider, quilt, and paint.

Location
Cottondale, Alabama
