New Directions

In 2017, I moved back home from Southern California, to Ontario Canada. My dad had been diagnosed with dementia in 2010, which was just after beginning my jewelry career. For many years I travelled back and forth helping out for weeks and sometimes months at a time. My dad passed away this year and was a harrowing journey of hospital stays and caring for him at home. My mom and I were by his side and I watched him take his final breath. It was painful to watch a man capable of so many things deteriorate before our eyes.
