Bob and Ingrid Coffin have been fans of James’s art and philosophy for more than 30 years.
Ingrid first learned about James Hubbell through her interest in stained glass.
Inspired by James’s work in the community and his beautiful appreciation of nature, members of the Blue Sky Ranch Fellowship, which is a community created by Ingrid, became long-time volunteers at Ilan-Lael events. Bob became a supporter in his own way by opening their historic Kensington home to Ilan Lael board meetings and special events.
Sadly, Bob passed away in 2019. As part of down-sizing, Ingrid donated crates of valuable art glass to Ilan-Lael. These were quickly put to use in new artworks designed by James and in stained glass workshops.
Additionally, Ingrid made a $100,000 gift to the Ilan-Lael Endowment. It provided an important cash boost to the program. We are very appreciative of their generosity.
