Carolyn Leete : With Sadness

I am deeply saddened and touched by the death of Carolyn Leete, a member of the RedBubble community. The tragic circumstances of her death are reported here and you may find her profile and art here.

Her art had a gentle beauty and optimism about it. It stands in stark contrast to the violence and futility of her murder. I cannot imagine how her family and friends are feeling. All I would say to them is that hers was a life that touched many through the art she shared.

I have authorised a donation from REDBUBBLE to Stop Violence Against Women part of the general campaign here. This is a global cause which resonates with us at RB.

In LA last week I met the Oscar winning director of Saving Face. The violence against Carolyn is part of a wider issue which must be recognised and dealt with in the 21st Century.

I would urge any who feel similarly to think if you also can make a contribution to this cause via an organisation that is dealing with the issue and to share this message.
