Anne McCollam's childhood collections evolved into a talent that led to the mosaic permanently installed in Moreau Hall at St. Mary's College, where she created the piece and earned her degree in art and art history. Her passion for antiques was instilled in her by her father at a very young age, and it eventually led to her taking over his column, where her love and knowledge for antiques come in handy for answering readers' questions about antiques of their own.
