Experts, Artists, Collectors
I tend to podner a lot, especially about dolls and collecting. I've read that artists are collectors, and I refer my readers to Austin Kleon's Steal Like an Artist for further elaboration. Collectors are artists; we collect selectively, often to create a pattern. Some artists like Dina Vierny, Joseph Cornell, and Rembrandt, literally collect, sometimes to find objects to create art, but sometimes just because they like other things, too.
