Unbelievably Sad


Sense of Sadness by Hannie Sarris

Hannie Sarris
, doll artist extraordinaire, passed away today. Shockingly sad news, I'm still having trouble processing it.

So very talented, so very inspiring. My thoughts go out to her family and all her friends and fans.

I had no idea...she was one of the most talented doll artist I think I have ever seen. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

Thank you for letting us know.

Wow, I had no idea either--that's terribly sad. I just saw a pic of her at this year's DIABA on Sandra A's blog. Truly a wonderful artist that will be missed by all

Oh Sue how sad indeed, I went to visit her site and I was in awe! What a beautiful gift she had and how she got to share it in her life time. Think of all the people she must have touched like you! You doll artist just amaze me, you make me feel great emotion, happiness, sadness, a tear, shocked, mezmerized and to that I thank you all. Blessings sweet lady, Pearl

I'll have to take some time and go see who she was. So sorry for you and all the others she inspired. You've sure had your share of losses lately. Here's a hug....

Thanks for posting this dear Sue.
We will miss her so much.
She was the icon of the Dutch doll world, the founder of Dabida but most of all..she was the so loved wife of Chris, Mother of their 4 sons and our friend.
Her sudden passing hurt so terribly much.

I am very saddened by this news. I absolutely love her work. I went to her class site and even placed it on my blogroll because I had hope to travel over to take a class from her.

Hannie was probably one of the most talented doll artists I have ever seen.

Thanks for letting us know.

I know it is so sad and so sudden.
Hannie and I emailed for awhile and I have several of her wonderful books.

She will be missed greatly.
Her family must be in shock. My heart goes out to them'=

This is so terribly sad. My thoughts go to her husband and sons.

Hannie's work is absolutely beautiful. I first saw it over 2 years ago, and regularly checked her site. I managed to buy her fairy book earlier this year. I'm just very sad at this news.
