Art has always been a part of my life. My favorite mediums are oil, pencil, pastel and acrylic. My favorite subject matters are people, portraits, still life flowers and landscapes. I am also an avid gardener and sometime use the plants and flowers I grow as my subject matter. I have always been more comfortable with realism but I do dabble in abstract. I believe you have to know the real world before you can abstract it.
