1024 - Petals of the Mind

1024 - Petals of the Mind
Rachel Jean Roorda, age 12 (now 13)
Las Vegas, NV   USA

Width: 9"   Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: Dimensional flower petals and butterflies with Heat & Bond, hot fix crystals.

Artist's Statement: My Alzheimer’s piece compares the mind to a beautiful rose. As you grow older your rose begins to die off, and petals begin to fall. The petals representing your memories slowly but surely fall to the ground where you are only prone to see them every once in a while.
Rachel Jean Roorda

Dedication: I dedicate my piece to everyone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, and hope the best for them. (Rachel’s mother is a nurse educator, and encourages her two daughters in their creativity and compassion).
