  • “Memory in Ink”Memory in Ink

    Ceramic, oxides, faux grass. This piece illustrates the recognition of Alzheimer's in the eyes of a man who has the condition. The moment between grasping a memory, and the memory vanishing into frustration.

I am currently working on a theme addressing the human condition and mental health issues.

The emotions, fears, and hopes of mental health and family are at the forefront of my work.
