All too frequently the world does not appreciate the influence of our artists in helping society shape its values. Unity was unique. She provided us with a connection to the beauty of that which surrounds us. Her work brought us closer to her subjects and at the same time helped us to understand a deeper message of humanity, nature and the balancing of self interest with the broader, global influences that are felt and experienced by our actions and at times in-actions. One only needs to look at the faces of her portrait subjects or find themselves in her landscapes to feel what she wanted us to experience, human feelings and nature's warmth.Unity was a gift to all of us that will live on for generations and generations. She will be missed.
