Artist Statement: A compass is an instrument for establishing direction. Let it be a symbol for families and caregivers to reach out and seek answers and help during times of feeling overwhelmed and alone.

Dedication: I made this in honor of my friend Pat. I listened to her over a course of 2 1/2 years as she would tell me how her mother, Armeta Barnes, was changing. How painful to watch your mother disappear. Through it all she was tough always making sure her mother was cared for with love and dignity.
