Alzheimer's Rug

This is the rug I'm currently working on.

The rug is my statement about the devastation caused by Alzheimers disease. the best and brightest parts of the woman are being torn away from her; she is unraveling. Her future is dark and tumultuous and her past is lost and confused.

My father-in-law suffered from this terrible disease and I felt compelled to create this rug as a tribute to him and to those who also are fighting against it. It's devastating to the individual and the families and friends who love them.

  1. This piece hit a chord as my mother has recently been diagnosed with dementia. You created a thoughtful work with emotion behind it. Just wonderful!
