Memory can anchor us, particularly in times of difficulty, because we can recall how we endured bad times or were rescued from overwhelming circumstances.
Exactly how one memory links with another is still a mystery. But the practice of ‘memory anchors’ has been shown to boost recollection, and encourage positive internal responses to external circumstances.
An anchor is also a familiar symbol of faith. A boat anchor keeps a vessel from floating away much the same way a solid faith can keep a life from drifting. A ‘memory anchor’ can work the same way by helping us connect what we are learning to something we already know.
So when life’s tumultuous waters come to overwhelm us, we can choose to anchor our thoughts in hope and not be swept away by waves of despair.

About the Neuron Series
My expressive paintings on neuron-centric subject matter advocate for communities in the realms of rare disease, neuroscience, and mental health. The content originated with my daughter’s rare genetic disorder. I became intrigued by the complexity and beauty of the human brain, inspired by the hope of its ability to re-circuit around inflicted damage.
I bring expressionistic, experiential fine art to the scientific community, yet incorporate scientific research and structure into the world of artistic expression. While the genre of digital neuro imaging is emerging, my unique approach weaves this ground-breaking content with human experience, creativity and painterly tradition - supporting fine art’s foothold amidst the growing influence of technology. My imagery intentionally blurs the lines of the abstract and physiological - recognizable as neurons to those with a trained eye but inclusive to all who are curious.
