The Memory Box Collection is a way for me to remember and honor beloved friends and family. Wrapping the cards with materials that symbolize my relationship with each individual, I pay homage to those who have influenced me throughout my life. From darkness, the objects emerge, like the dawning of long-forgotten memories. These “keepsakes” each list the name of the deceased along with the dates of birth and passing.
