I began painting in pastel, watercolor and Acrylic six years ago. In the past year I painted several big pieces in acrylic and fluid acrylic. I like intended color and the freedom feeling I get from acrylic mediums. I have painted birds, flowers, seascapes, landscapes and pet portraits. They have been both realistic and abstract.
