________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
On photographs I took of centuries old Florentine walls (including more recent graffiti), pavements, streets, manhole covers cobblestone
squares and floors of churches. I determine to adhere to our grandmother’s and mother’s motto “waste not want not”, using inherited items, I
glue, patch, measure, mark, decorate, fasten, mimic, pin, stitch, recycle and so doing I smile, dedicate and remember.

Archival print with hand-worked embellishments.
