The Norwegian German, (Kristen) Schröder Konaté left us for where ever it is that strong, smart, honest, brave, generous, and talented artists go.
If you didn’t get a chance to know her (and I almost didn’t) you missed out on a very interesting and amazing human.
She passed from complications of COVID, she had an auto immune issue that created a terrible storm.
She was young, beautiful, loved her husband and her kids and was a loved by a whole lot of people.
I am gutted.
If you feel moved to pray, meditate, or light a candle for her and her family this is the time, they need to feel the love.
She is going to arrive on the other side a little pissed I think, she fought like hell, she will be greatly missed.
Sorry to hear!! what a horrid time
She seems like a lovely lady,she will certainly be missed. I will be sending her family love energy.
What kind of Artist was she? Saying prayers for her family!
So sad to hear! Prayers for her family
Sorry to have heard about this amazing person this way! Sounds like she was To beautiful for earth. I’m sorry to hear that her family and friends have to go through this.
So very tragic
Big hugs and healing prayers to her family and friends.
I knew her. She was very kind to me and encouraged me. I will miss her and am heartbroken for her family
Reborn artist she had a very unique style.
I am sorry to hear that she lost her battle
Thank you @jlesser I remember seeing her dolls, they are beautiful and she will be greatly missed.
Prayers for her family…how perfectly awful.
So sorry for the loss, my heart goes out to the family
My deepest condolences to her family, so sad.
so sad!! Her beautiful work will be missed.
Sorry to hear this. Prayers for her family.
Sorry to hear this. Praying for strength for all who loved her. I am battling autoimmune issues too and am trying to be very careful. I had to stop working in Oct.
She was a formally trained artist, she drew, painted, and did some sculpting. She made unique Ethic dolls that she sold and donated the proceeds to special needs kids and to a reading program.
She was a member of the reborn community, she was very honest about art, life, creating, and giving back.
She had a wicked sense of humor and a very strong personality.
She is the kinda person you could trust to give you the raw truth.
I remember coming across her work and asking you, “who is this?” I had mixed feelings about her at first, had no idea I would end up stalking her (well not really). I messaged her one day and told her we had to be friends, I just loved her energy and attitude.
I remember seeing her dolls and how beautiful they were…very much a style of her own and so intriguing. I’m sure she will be greatly missed by all who loved her. Thank you Gina for sharing this.
