Harvey Edwards
      Harvey Edwards is a celebrated artist who has won worldwide critical acclaim from some of the nation's leading reviewers. The New York Times wrote (with his) "…impeccable prints, Mr. Edwards conveys the intensity of his involvement by closing in on the telling details of a scene". Applause comes from Art Business News, as well, reviewing Mr. Edwards as "the master of his art who has the sensitivity to express true emotions through powerful images which leave a dramatic and lasting impression".

      At the age of ten, Mr. Edwards was given his first art lessons. He was immediately fascinated by his ability to express feelings and emotions through his medium and ultimately to create what he now calls his LITHOGRAPHIC MONTAGE, which is the process of created his image as parts of a puzzle. Each piece is

as important as the next. From the initial sketch to the final printing, there are myriad's of steps in achieving the image as a fine art print. Even on press, Mr. Edwards controls the subtleties or intensity of color that brings the image to life.

      After serving in the Air Force as base and aerial photographer during the Vietnam War, Mr. Edwards attended the University of Miami, majoring in the fine arts and developing his creativity by studying painting and sculpture. By the end of the next decade, he had been honored with 64 one-man shows. Originally recognized for his compelling images of ballet dancers, his work now explores the byways of a broader America.

"As we live in a world where the price of art makes it unattainable for most to acquire, my philosophy is art must be made accessible for all to own. For without art in our lives what is left?" - Edwards.
