Original collage, screen print and cut paper. Patron Hallow of the Florida Keys is a lovely lady of the tropics, inspired by the natural beauty of the Florida Keys and the beauty of older women. Her blue and lilac robes are trimmed with the intricate patterns of black mangrove roots.

This is a collage of original handmade screen prints and cut paper. Several years ago, I began a series of original art called "The 60 Year Project", featuring portraits of elder citizens, all at least 60 years of age to draw attention to issues of ageism and to highlight the beauty inherent in growing older. I received an award from The Puffin Foundation LTD for my artwork, and have had the honor of exhibiting internationally. These newest collages were made while I was an Artist in Residence at The Studios of Key West in the Spring of 2021.
