"Someone to Watch Over Me"
By Pamela Dewhirst

It is with a very sad heart that we post the news of another artist's passing. On June 12th, Pam Dewhirst [Chromafolio] passed away suddenly at the age of 44.

Pamela is survived by her loving husband, David [hankim]; father and mother, Ted and Patricia Schneider; her brothers, John and Tom; and her sister, Sue.

"She was a trained artist, with a BFA from Syracuse University. She first began working with CG in the mid-'90s as the lead artist for a software house that created CD-ROM applications, but her enthusiasm for Poser and other applications didn't take off until she was introduced to it in 2001. She joined Renderosity not long after that.

During her time at Renderosity, she was plagued by a multitude of physical problems. However, she made some good and constant friends here. To those that knew her that are saddened by her passing, I would ask you to look at it the way that I have been trying to: For Pam, all of the pain and hurt and suffering are at long last gone. She is in a better place now, her spirit free of the body that imprisoned and tortured her for so long.

Pam was a lifelong animal lover. If anyone wishes to memorialize her, I would like to ask that you make a donation in her name, no matter how small, to your local animal shelter or Humane Society or equivalent. She would have really like that."
