Artist Statement: Alzheimer's disease is much like a set of watercolors. In the beginning the colors are all clear and bright, but once the colors all start to run together they become muddy and then sooner or later everything turns to black. The only difference with Alzheimer's is that it's the memories of everything you know and love, not just the colors, that run together and are eventually lost.
