Once upon a time, Edward faced a choice. Ahead of him lay a number of options, one was to art, another the stage. He chose the stage. However, a number of years later, the choice came back, and it was visual art which won his heart. Edward says that the breakthrough moment occurred while looking at the fantastic Monet paintings at Musee d'Orsay in Paris. Edward believes in magic and understands it as something exceptional and breathtaking. He admires 'magical' characters, places and objects and hopes to pass a little bit of magic in his gloriously colourful paintings.
