Brian and Debbie Bodager began collecting my work in the 80s when I was represented by galleries in Sanibel, and Naples, Florida. At that time, I was mostly showing mixed media works on paper and The Bodagers began building their collection starting with these small works. Eventually, when the galleries closed, they contacted me about a show I was having at the time, and acquired a few more pieces.
Many years later, I was contacted about my work again, this time from another family member. She scheduled a studio appointment, but I had no idea whom I was going to meet. Much to my surprise, when they arrived, months later, Brian and Debbie introduced themselves.
These folks probably have the largest assembly of my work, (with the exception of my late mama) So great to finally meet them; and I now can count them among my friends.
