It is with deep sadness that I relay the news of Karen's passing. 
I want to send love and condolences to Jeff and their daughter.Of course it's a great understatement to say that she was a beautiful person of integrity and an astonishingly sensitive painter but I want to say it anyway.Her friendship, her life and art will all continue to inspire us.
