When you make something it just feels so good. Especially when you're older and can't get out and do what you used to. And I like to learn new things!”
-82 year-old client with Dementia
My mother completed dozens of projects with Sharon. Her work gave Mother incredible satisfaction at a time in her life when there were few opportunities for personal accomplishment. Her capacities were greatly diminished, but she still related to the visual stimulus of art.
Sharon's ability to encourage participation appropriate to the person's skill level was exceptional. I will never forget the smile on Mother's face when leaving, holding her latest creation. She could say with pride, 'Look what I did today!' I will always treasure these precious examples of Mother's creative side.”
