My great-GREAT grandfather Jacinto Jorganes, 1906

 My dad taught me how to play and sing old Cuban songs, told me numerous stories and jokes from the old homeland, and showed me all the photos our family was able to sneak out of Cuba. There are not very many. These photos inspired my body of art work, among them, the 78 collages in the tarot cards of the Floriography Tarot Deck. Scroll down for a special glance into the Floriography Tarot process, these magnificently nostalgic photos from my family history, and the cards they inspired!
