Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would make a fractal that may help us all remember that. It’s pink and it has a design that I think reflects the target(s) of this disease pretty well. I hope you enjoy my little reminder about this important disease and all the people affected by it.

A wonderful fractalist by the name of Titia VanBeugen died earlier this year of this horrid disease and I was thinking of her when I made this. She was not only an amazing artist, but a truly lovely human being with a strong spirit and love for life. She often used her work to express how she felt about her illness. For those of you not familiar with Titia’s work, here is a link to her website . Here’s another link to the Titia’s page in the Virtual Math Museum . I’m so delighted that both sites are still up. So, happily, her art lives on! Godspeed, Titia, you are greatly missed.

Here are some examples of her terrific work:

And a beautiful image and poem by Titia. Click on image to see it larger.

Created in UF5 and postwork done in GIMP.

I am a recent fractal artist, just since 2008. I have fallen in love with this type of art because of the infinite variety of form, fabulous colors and great lighting effects that can be achieved. The software is mostly free and I dabble with most of them. If you enjoy fractal art, please take a look at my gallery. I would be thrilled if you stop by and say “Hi” and make a comment (or not)!

    Simply exceptional and dedicated to a most wonderful cause.

  • Thank you very much! I wanted to do something for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I hope this will make people remember those who have succumbed to, those who are fighting and those who have survived this terrible disease. Let’s hope and pray for a cure soon.

    That is beautiful. And it is such an important message.

  • Thank you so much, Vivien! I appreciate the comment and, yes, it is a very important message. I hope this acts as a gentle reminder to people to please remember those who have been affected by this dreadful disease that has taken so many wonderful people from us. I just hope that soon a cure can be found so that no more women (or men for that matter) ever have to suffer from it again.

    Just wonderful work and a great cause in mind here WP- beautiful in every way!

  • Thank you, Rosie, for the wonderful comment! I wanted to do something nice for Breast Cancer Awareness month and to pay tribute to the lovely Titia for her inspiration and kindness to other fractal artists. She was such a lovely person. It saddens me greatly that we lost her so soon.

    You’re very welcome hun. Yes I spoke with her on several occasions. She truly was a lovely person. She did not let that monster take everything away from her. She didn’t sit & complain… she fought through her words and her art and I am honored I had the chance to know her.
