I was saddened to hear today that an artist friend had passed away suddenly this past week, as a result of an aneurysm that occurred during surgery required after having suffered a stroke two weeks ago.
I first met Kym Stromberg a couple of years ago at Journalfest, an art retreat organized by Teesha Moore and Tracy Moore. She was a talented artist and a very kind, lovely person.
This link leads to an interview with Kym that appeared on Violette Clark's blog back in August of this year.
Here's a picture of Kym and I together at PLAY, another art retreat held in January, 2012. As you can see, we both are wearing matching scarves, made by Liesel Lund that we had bought at Journalfest a few months before.
Rest in peace, Kym, we'll miss you.
