It is with great sadness that we hear about the passing of Hannah Loesser, known to the Renderosity Community as artist hannahlo, on Thursday, January 25th, after her long battle with Cancer.(Link)
Her artistic talents ranged from the traditional, using oils and pastels, and having several successful exhibitions of her paintings from New York to Florida. It was then on to the digital realm when she found Renderosity.
She stated on her Renderosity homepage: "I love you all. I love Renderosity. Thanks for being here so I always have somewhere wonderful to go to. Thank you everyone for your generosity, talent, incredible merchandise, and kindness. This one site has changed my whole life in the best way."
Art was her passion, and her spirit will forever shine through her work.
From Hannah's sister, Susan Loesser: "I know that Hannah had very good and loving friends and colleagues at Renderosity, and that you were very important to her. You provided her a forum for her unique, thoughtful, powerful work. I see that her last posted rendering ("Please No") was June 17, 2005, just a few days before her cancer recurrence was diagnosed and her world turned into a living hell. Obviously, she knew what was coming. It was the last piece she did. Our family deeply appreciates knowing that Hannah had all of you in her heart."
The Renderosity Community extends our deepest sympathies and best wishes to Hannah’s family and friends. She will be greatly missed. Please join with us in sending Hannah's family and friends our condolences.
We also invite you to take a few moments to view Hannah's Renderosity Art Gallery.
It was Hannah's wish that any donations be made to the North Shore Animal League.
