Where it all began . . .
OUR ARTIST and her vision . . .
Karen Anderson (1960-2004)
Artist/Creator of GRACE and MANNERS
A passionate advocate of arts education, libraries as centers that build communities, and all expressions of human kindness, Karen's commitment to public service was cut short when she succumbed to Hughes/Antiphospholipid Syndrome. Her life is an inspiration, and her vision, our focus. Karen never gave up one interest for another. She sought to use her collective skillset in the visual and performing arts, and arts education, to make a difference. Each of her creative interests merged and inspired the next one -- all of the working to serve the highest and greater common good for the human family. She NEVER stopped drawing, sculpting, painting, and producing visual products. Even during the challenges of her illness, she turned her concerns to philanthropy and patient advocacy. Grace & Manners works to complete her vision as a public servant working to have a social impact.
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” —Audrey Hepburn
