The Irving Collection
This collection was made as I was grieving the passing of my grandfather, Lawrence Irving Kruger. My grandpa was my best friend, and I definitely have his personality and sense of humor.
Born and raised in the Bronx, NYC, my grandpa had a very thick NY accent his whole life. He loved to call me and all the women in his life "babe," and had a tough-love approach in life.
After his retirement, grandpa moved to the city I lived in to be there while I grew up. I was only 6 years old when he came to live in our city. I am so grateful he did. I got to know him and the brilliant man he was.
He was really proud of me, and I know he'd be proud of this collection.
