Established as a marine artist, his work is in private collections throughout the UK and numerous countries worldwide. The late 1990’s extended his local and British interest to include American maritime history, East coast whaling ships, West coast lumber schooners. This resulted in Edwin’s work being sold via Christie’s Maritime Auction in New York.
Edwin’s work displays attention to detail and an understanding of the maritime genre. He still retains some interest in landscapes but is happiest painting the sea and coastline, rivers, and the vessels that inhabit them. He enjoys the research and challenge that is required to portray ships, capturing water and its movement, reflected light and the ever changing mood of the weather, the crucial elements of marine painting.
