captured the essence of the residents’ stories and experiences in

her artwork with the assistance of Alie Zieverink. In her pieces,

Claassens has incorporated forget-me-not flowers, symbolizing the

importance of cherishing memories, as well as butterflies,

representing the fleetingness of time and memories. Through her unique

artistic vision, Claassens aims to spark reflection and appreciation
