This work is a part of Femfolio, a collaborative project bringing together twenty woman artists who created the feminist revolution in art during the early 1970s. All artists were featured in the exhibition "How American Women Artists Invented Postmodernism: 1970-1975" at the Mason Gross School of the Arts Galleries (December 15, 2005–January 27, 2006). In collaboration with Master Printer John C. Erickson and the Brodsky Center.

Azara says of her print, "'Broken Leaf' is a metaphor for wholeness. It is a broken leaf, a fragment, a symbol, emerging from the shadows, in the process of becoming, evolving, realizing its full potential." Azara notes that the leaves, a recurrent themem in her work, represent growth, change, and the aritst's self. The fragmented layers, some translucent, some opaque, are pressed on top of each other, merging into a complete image.

Digital print with pochoir and hand lithography.
