Artist Statement: Contemplating the ravages of Alzheimer’s as I stitched; I wondered … would I forget how to recognize beauty?

May we all continue to appreciate the simple, profound natural beauty that keeps us in its embrace, while we rejoice in gratitude. We pray for those who may have forgotten.
