Deborah works primarily in two directions. In one she uses photographs-her own, found photos, photos of friends and family as well as old advertising pictures from vintage magazines. She manipulates these images digitally and then prints them on specially treated cottons and silks before working them into larger constructions. In the other direction she cuts and reconfigures images

disc imageWe have purchased a disc cleaning machine to clean the library's DVDs and CDs. If you have personal DVDs, CDs, or game discs that need a buffing, bring them to the library and Jen will clean them for you. We ask for you to pay $2.00 per disc to help cover the cost for the cleaning solutions required. Jen is at the library on Wednesday and Friday afternoons or you can leave them at the library for her to clean. Please leave your name and contact information with the disc. We will do our best to improve your discs, but we will not be responsible if the enhancement does not fix the problem or for any damage to the disc.
