See your queer fabulousness reflected back at you from the canvas, the page, the screen.

Celebrating the full range of queer experiences is the aim of my work. That’s right, I’m telling stories about you, darling, and the people nearest and dearest to your heart. While it’s true anyone’s experiences and stories can be gateways to the universal truths that entangle us together, it’s nice to feel seen, to find your reflection staring back at you from your chosen media.

My name is Edward and I’m a self-taught artist. I like to work independent of the artistic establishment and connect directly with my audiences. Art is conversation, not monologue. So come on in, darling, have a look around. Pull up a chair, let me pour you a stiff one and let’s converse.
