“Editha Dorothea” Life after FSL by Marius Mason

Artist statement: Editha Dorothea (or “Edie”, as we called her) was my bunkie here for a time. She got a compassionate release, thank goodness and went back to Michigan to be with her kids. A former beauty pageant winner, a Phillipino-American nurse in her 70’s (and did not look it at all) whose company got mixed up in some bad billing. She’s a stong-willed woman and an avid gardner – so i wanted to picture her surrounded by a lush tropical garden (like her childhood home)! bet she’s planning on planting a huge garden this year, now that she’s home.
