    I don't consider myself 'artsy' in the slightest way, but I know what I like and I liked her style. Her paintings never failed to put a smile on my face.

    Goodbye Mrs Cook

    it's very sad to hear about the death of Beryl Cook . Her images of jolly fat ladies have enchanted a whole host of art lovers. She was loved by her fans and hated by the critics . So bollocks to them , what do they know?

    Her work looks like a tame, non-politically charged version of Fernando Botero's work (possibly NSFW).

    Still sad to see any artist's lights dimmed, even after such a relatively long life. RIP.

    Poor woman :( I love her art, I never follower her as such, I didn't even exactly know her name but as soon as I read the thread title I had hoped it wasn't "the fat woman" artist.

    Good thing I minimized that tab. Almost forgot.

    New art, to me. So full of joie de vivre.

    I really like the cocktail waitress. Her face is excellent. I would like a print of that one.

    Sad to say, but now that she has passed, perhaps her art might "travel" more.

    :)
