My favorite style of art is eclectic and modern. My husband is a graphic designer, so art is big in our house. We encourage our 4 year twin boys to be artistic and give them opportunities to explore all the time.

I truly treasure all styles of visual art as I can't imagine a world without appreciating all it's beauty and creativity! I do love the strong lines and color of POP - it brings out the energy in me! My daughter majored in Fine Arts - Studio Art/ Fiber Arts and Graphic Design. My brother is a ceramic artist and my father (age 90), who instilled this love in all of us, continues to dabble in painting and photography. All of us would share in enjoying this book!

I enjoy classical realist art. Mostly of religious depictions.
