Pinup Girls #2: “Hearts & Flowers” by Edith Borax Morrison
This bra is lavishly covered in vintage pins. The hearts and flowers are interspersed with an occasional butterfly or bee. All are wearable separately, but we love the fantastic overall effect.
Edith Borax Morrison is a 19-year survivor of breast cancer who suffered a recurrence last year. During her treatment and convalescence she had episodes of pain and insomnia that she was only able to cope with by “adding a T”, turning ‘pain’ into ‘paint’.
Edith’s free-hand, free-form compositions evolve from her intense concentration on her experiences. Her Mandalas are exhibited at the Kehler-Liddell Gallery in Westville, as well as at shows and galleries throughout New England. She has won prizes for her work from the renowned Silvermine Art Association in New Canaan. Edith lives and works in Trumbull, CT, and received her treatment at Smilow.
