C/V

An unusual amalgam of independent dealer, expert researcher, biographic archivist and make do curator working from the lowly depths. 

 

Traditional history does not often represent the working poor. My finds illustrate a more inclusive American context with resonant emotional calls from the past. 

 

I took my first steps in family shops, have owned galleries, written for auctions and built archives. Today I self publish, exhibit and provide institutional quality examples for anyone working to present relevant history. 

 

My eBay store (rarebooksandpaper) and Etsy shop (curleysden) will continue as they have 20+ years and the BEST lives here. 

 

Wipe your feet and come on in.
