Artwork > The Alzheimer's Series

Carol Procter retired after 38 years of playing the cello with the BSO. In retirement, she sought new outlets for her creativity, mainly photography and mixed media collage. Within the past two years, Carol received a diagnosis of Alzheimer's, and with the help of her partner Barbara Benjamin and further investigation it was discovered she had an atypical visual variant of Alzheimer's, specifically Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA). Reconizing that time was of the essence, Carol then found the impetus to complete several unfinished projects.

Carol created her "Alzheimer's Series", a set of collages expressing her inner experiences and insights into living with PCA.
