    Hi Bobbi,
    I just went to your website and found it so interesting. You continue to evolve as an artist and that’s a wonderful thing.

    It was so nice to see you and Al at the 50th Reunion for Smithtown H.S. Class of 1964.
    I’m glad that we had a chance to talk.
    Best Regards,
    Karen Smith

    Hello Bobbi
    I absolutely love your manhole covers! So unique and brings beauty to the city streets!
    I actually just applied to a Fulbright to travel to Mexico to learn mural painting. I plan on building a network of artists that share a common goal of beautifying city streets. Hopefully, I will get the Fulbright and can travel to Mexico which has a rich culture and history of muralist.

    Will keep in touch and will keep myself up to date with your new creations and events 🙂
