Worn Memories examines how the things we love most often fall apart, which, despite being emotional, can also be beautiful. My brother’s beloved soft toy, Ray, is central to this narrative, and shows how honest stains remain of those sweet innocent memories we experience.  This collection showcases the emotional memories and experiences I have shared with cloth. In loving memory of Ray.
