My sources for research and photographs have been: Family archives, The Library of Congress, Ellis Island, Americans All, and the Georgia Archives.

I used photocopies of photographs, which were pertinent to my main subject to create a paper quilt which I laminated on a canvas, then painted with transparent paint.

I then used an enlarged photocopied image of a single photograph to obtain a transparent photo-transfer.

This image was laminated on top of the quilt then using transparent paint in layers, created my painting.
