Artist's Statement: Family members have suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease. I use scraps , assembling them to make something whole and beautiful again, wishing the whole time, I could make them whole again. I have ALS now so these are my last efforts…My mind is fine but my body has failed me. It is ironic that Alzheimer’s robs the mind of it’s function while leaving the body intact while ALS robs the body of its function while leaving the mind intact.

Dedication: In memory of my Father and my Mother-in-Law.
