Kate Barber's husband John informed us she had died on May 10th, in her sleep and surrounded in love by John and their dogs. She had been ill for some months.
|Kate Barber, on left. This was from our outing to the new Burke Museum and it just seems to be an example of her attitude. She and John traveled widely. |
Kate was a constant sketcher. She posted most on Facebook and Instagram. Her sketches were so lively, colorful and loose. She loved her dogs and often posted sketches of them to her personal accounts. During this outing in her neighborhood, she brought one with her.
She embraced technology and often sketched on her tablet, using a variety of sketching apps. She was always learning and experimenting. She invited me to her home once to give me a tutorial.
