Archival Ink on Newsprint

This work began after discovering an Italian side to my family that I had previously known next to nothing about. I listened to stories and anecdotes about these strangers that I was connected to by blood. I also received images of them, of their parents and children. Fascinated by this wealth of new-found knowledge, I began to construct characters and flesh out the stories I had been told - fact has merged with fiction, truth with fantasy and a new story has been created.
