MiniatureMadness whose real name was Ann Maselli Freeland died on December 12, 2010 after a long battle with cancer. Mad, my friend was such a very creative and talented miniaturist. Her death is a major loss to our art form, as well as to those who loved and cared about her.
I am heartbroken and saddened. I will miss her and, I know, so will many others.
Her son, James, wrote a memorial to her on her Flickr Photostream. He is devastated by her death. If you knew Mad or Ann and/or her work, please take a moment to go to her MiniatureMadness Flickr Photostream and leave a comment to let her beloved son know how much she was admired, loved, liked, and how much she will be missed. He needs support at this horrible time.
Godspeed, Dear Mad, Marsha
