Florence moved to Pennsylvania in January 2018. Since then she has felt welcomed into the art community there and has been accepted into Philadelphia Area organizations: InLiquid, ARTsisters, DaVinci Art Alliance, and Tri-State Artist Equity. She is a Professional Artist Member of the Mainline Art Center, and is a founding member of the new Philadelphia CollageWorks organization.

Below is a description of her most recent exhibitions:

Selected Works by ARTsisters

The Henry Gallery at Penn State Great Valley
30 E. Swedesford Road
Malvern, PA 19355

This exhibit features all-new works by the members of ARTsisters, a vibrant group of professional women artists committed to giving back through volunteerism and donations of goods and services. For this show, the artists used visual and written storytelling to address human trafficking in everything from abstraction to realism. Red sand is incorporated as a design element in each of the pieces to connect diverse art styles, and as a symbolic message: red sand, sprinkled in public walkways, reminds us that we can’t just walk over people who have fallen between the cracks in our communities.
