Our dear Emilia, gone! So painful to hear the news; so hard to accept.
She was for me the best model.
Serious, determined, quirky,
fabulous physical forms, ever a delight,
so strong in forcing herself into those memorable poses and holding them for so long.
I’m glad she entered my life through the drawing class
and I will always treasure the hundreds of drawings I did of her.
For me, she lives on.
I will cover my walls with my drawings of her and remember how valuable she was to all of us as a master model.
We miss you, dear Emilia.
