|In Memory of Suzanne Burgos [ARTWITHIN]|
It is with great sadness that we hear that Suzanne Burgos, known here as Renderosity member, ARTWITHIN, passed away on Saturday, August 3rd, 2013 (Link...).
Suzanne had been a Renderosity member since 2006, sharing her beautiful art in the 2D Gallery here. She had also spent a lot of time as a coordinator of the 2D Gallery and Forum, greeting new people and helping to make 2D a thriving part of Renderosity. Unfortunately, she didn't leave anything behind in her gallery here, but you can see some of her works on her Wordpress site. Many of us still remember her wonderful art and the contributions she made to Renderosity's 2D community. She will be truly missed.
Suzanne Burgos [ARTWITHIN]
A dear friend of Suzanne's, anahata.c, shares a beautiful tribute to her:
"I learned that Suzanne Burgos---ARTWITHIN, on RR---passed away of cancer, on August 3rd of this year.
Suzanne was Coordinator of the 2D Gallery and Forum for several years, as well as a notable artist herself.
Her last year on RR was a painful one, as all her friends knew; but she accomplished a great deal here, and I wanted to share it as I did with Suzanne so often when she was alive...
Suzanne championed 2D on Renderosity, and turned the 2D Forum into an extraordinarily creative gathering, as the participants remember so well... She over-saw a gush of creative energy, inspiring artists to 'riff' off each other, to create from each others' creations, suggesting a wide array of themes, and encouraging a remarkable stream of projects and wonderful play---in an art that's usually known for being slow and solitary (ie, painting and drawing). At her height, she created a truly fertile ground, and made 2D feel grand.
For me, she was the first person to encourage me to return to art after so many years; and she urged me to come to the Forum and "meet the crew"---people I considered giants, and who later become my friends: i.e., Helle (helanker), Koosie, Martin (groegnitram), Gun (gunsan), Tim (november22) and later Ana (anaber), among others. Some became family for me, and for all this I remain truly grateful...
But she also constantly welcomed people to the 2D Gallery---she even learned everyone's names, including those who rarely posted; and she was a marvelous artist herself.
She was overtaken by cancer in the end, and I'm grateful she's out of pain now; and I send my deepest wishes to all who loved her, and I'll always remember the embrace and love she brought here for so long, and the art that she loved so dearly. Rest in peace Suzanne, and know that the horizons you opened for many will always be there, shining and inviting and in your name,
blessings and peace to you in abundance,
In Memory of Suzanne
We invite you to join with us in sending condolences to Suzanne's family and friends.
