R.I.P. Gry Garness

I'm sorry to announce that Gry Garness lost her long battle with cancer yesterday. She was a lovely person and a skilled artist. She remained upbeat and positive until the end.

Her final few years she lived a life many would envy. She met the love of her life and moved to a beautiful home in Spain.

I only knew her professionally, but we spent quite a lot of time talking. It was clear she was a rare individual of kindness and generosity of spirit. She loved her work and sharing what she knew.

Our world is a little smaller today.

Re: R.I.P. Gry Garness

This is a great shock...I spoke with her several times regarding a collaboration, she was always up beat and positive. I was envious of her move to Spain to a city I love, but had no idea about her situation with cancer...
Quite stunned..... we have all lost a great, generous talent and a lovely person...

Thoughts go out to all who knew her and those that could have known her.

She did what she loved. She was a great teacher, I remember her books being my first steps into the retouching world.

Completely shocked to hear this. I bought her retouching DVD last year and it is one of my favourite retouching ones - she had such a lovely voice and a great teaching style.

Re: R.I.P. Gry Garness

One of my favorite memories of Gry was the time we had a show scheduled but she switched internet providers that same week. For some reason, we never did find out why, the show software didn't play well with her new provider.

I told her we could just cancel, but she didn't want to disappoint anyone. She went door-to-door in her apartment building, looking for someone that used her old internet provider. She found someone who was willing and did the show on a laptop from their kitchen table.

She repaid them by baking them a lasagna.
