Artist's Statement: My father was a commercial lobster fisherman at the New Jersey shore. I grew up around the water, and love everything about the beach and the ocean. I quilted this mini quilt in wavy lines which I wanted to represent the waves when they reach the beach. The waves can also represent the good days and bad days with Alzheimer’s.

Dedication: In memory of my father, George E. Stires, who was a commercial fisherman and taught me to love the beach and the water.
