About Pete Prown.

Pete has led a 30-year career in journalism, working in two dissimilar fields – the music business and Philadelphia gardening world. He’s a writer, magazine and web editor, and landscape photographer. Pete is also an author with several books to his credit. For the past 20 years, he’s also honed his skills as a painter specializing in still life, landscapes, and botanicals. Pete has exhibited his work throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, and continues to paint and study avidly. 

Artist's Statement.

"Much of my art is influenced by my past work in music, horticulture, and photography. They influence each other, yet also jostle for dominance. I'm often surprised which one dominates the finished painting."
