I have been collecting women artists in the Modernist Tradition since 1982. When I began, I had a limited art education, a small amount of funds and was not buying to build a collection but rather to challenge the canon of art. These reasons alone forced me to seek out the undiscovered, the unknown, and gave me the gift of buying paintings that I responded to on a visceral level.
