Autoportrait Wearing Pill Box Hat2014 by Rachel Berman

She must have drawn this 16 days before she died.


Renowned artist Rachel Berman (AKA Susan King) passed away peacefully on Wed., May 28 at her home in Victoria, British Columbia. Rachel was 68 years old. Beloved friend of John Ingram, Tarah Aylward and Jeff Duns. Rachel was loved by all who knew her. A special thank you to all her friends for the wonderful care and support over the last years of her life. Berman lived to paint, creating masterful works that remain to be enjoyed throughout the ages. Self described as a solitary flâneur, Berman was a quiet observer of life, a thinker and a humanist.

In our hearts always, Rachel will be celebrated and mightily missed. As she was fond of inscribing on her paintings - Rachel Berman is Still Travelling.

As per her wish, there will be no visitation or funeral service.

If desired, in memoriam donations may bemade to your favorite art institution and/or local animal ...
