Gifts for IFS Deep Healing Retreat, Moloka’i

These small collages were gifts for the staff and participants at the IFS Deep Healing Retreat on Moloka’i, Hawaii. They were lovingly made from photographs of my eldest brother Michael’s watercolor paintings combined with background papers I hand printed. Michael lived in Honolulu for many decades and taught watercolor painting at the University of Hawaii until his death in 2017.  The paintings of Hawaiian flora reflect a respect for the land and Indigenous culture, as he was deeply sensitive to environmental plunder.
