We're saddened to announce the death of British painter Frances Turner. She died tragically on Thursday, July 17th, 2003 from a brain hemorrhage. Her talent as a painter burned so very bright - a short but intense flame, extinguished way too early. We feel fortunate to have been touched by her life.

Our hearts go out to Peter, her long-time partner and & lover.

A Guestbook for Frances Turner has been created at:
Art@Large
for those wishing to post or read notes about the artist.

MONEY
“…I named what I thought was an enormous sum. Without blinking an eye, he gathered up my life work and handed me the amount I asked for: $70… I didn’t expect more. Remember that homosexuality was forbidden in most of the Western world; so all those businesses were illegal, black market. I knew that they wouldn’t have paid me more anyway — or so I believed then.”
— Tom of Finland
