About the Artist/Site

Beginning in 1935, using postcards and drawings a models, she created miniature scenes of places that she had visited or read about. In in 1970 she created a concrete recreations of the view from her cabin in Estes Park, CO, Longs Peak, Meeker and Lady Washington Mountain, and also Pinnacle Mountains, in Arizona. All this was an “outlet for my feelings.” Florence first started to work with the help from an uncle, a stone mason, when she built a concrete seat in 1931. When a local child drowned in her fish pool they filled it in and between 1931 and 1935 she did not work. This site has been restored and preserved. The Kansas Grassroots Art Center now uses the house for artists in residence. Since 2002, the first floor of Florence’s home has been turned into the Garden of Isis.
