www.artisanswineandhomebrew.com We have used Collins Insurance several years now for all our business insurance needs and couldn't be happier. I had tons of calls from other companies wanting to be our agent, but Betsy was by far the most knowledgeable and the nicest. There's never a time that I called with a question or a need for documentation that she or Norma doesn't follow through in prompt and accurate fashion. Collins Insurance gets a FIVE STAR in my book.!!! www.toroconcreteinc.com As a startup business without a traack record it was difficult o get business insurance. Betsy found it. Our agent, Betsy, has done a great job. "Betsy and Ken Collins and their agency have supplied our company with the greatest of care and insurance for many, many years now. " I met Betsy Collins when I purchased my first property in Norfolk, VA in 2000. Betsy and I have had numerous conversations over the years. She was very helpful and informative in order for me to make prudent business decisions. I purchased by flood policy through Collins Insurance in 2003. We have just recently, since 2009 had a more proactive business relationship. Betsy is very thorough in her research for obtaining hazard and liability insurance. Collins Insurance has saved me big bucks with the best coverage. I recommend them highly."

Helen and I stopped by Out North to meet Liz Collins, a textile and clothing designer and recipient of a 2006 United States Artist (USA) Target Fellowship.
Collins is the latest participant in the Alaska Artist-in-Residence program (Alaska AIR), a unique collaboration between USA and Rasmuson Foundation that brings artists to our state. Upon entering the Out North gallery space, I had already zoomed in on two fabulous gowns on display when we were each handed a strobe flashlight. The addition of light transformed the work into colorful effervescent party dresses that I Imagine would be fairly amazing to wear. liz collins USA Target Fellow Liz Collins. Photo courtesy of the artist. Collins is recognized internationally for her use of manually operated knitting machines to create innovative clothing, textiles, and installations. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, she spent several years managing her own clothing label before returning to Rhode Island to teach. Her experimental use of materials and methods has led her to develop unique techniques. When we met Collins, she had that look of awe and excitement that is frequently seen in first-time visitors (the look that reminds Alaskans to appreciate what is often taken for granted) and a sign that she will most likely immerse herself in her new surroundings. During her month in Alaska, she will be working in a studio space at the International Gallery of Contemporary Art, giving public lectures, visiting with textile artists and traditional weavers, as well as taking advantage of the Alaskan summer light to travel.
