George V. Edwards was born and raised in Baltimore, Md. He grew up in a family of artists who were art teachers except for his mother. Her artwork often outsold his father's at local festivals and exhibitions. She did sell less expensive pieces, drawings and prints, while his father sold large framed watercolor paintings. George learned the value of selling prints at affordable prices, which came in handy later in life as a professional artist.
Mission statement - My mission as an artist is basically to communicate. I believe feelings are more important than the literal statement. You can write down the idea before you paint, and some have argued that this is enough, but I believe feelings are often a spontaneous gesture improvised from moment to moment when working on an image, be it painting, caricatures, or photography, my three main mediums of expression.
Company policies – The client basically pays a deposit before actual work on a commission is started. Unless it is a print of a piece aready made for purchase. The PayPal link is used for deposits and payments for artwork, unless other arrangements are made like a cash payment at the end of a caricature party gig or when a work is picked up.
Charcoals, Pastels, and Oil Paintings each have a separate page of samples, just click on the appropriate page at the top.
Photographs taken and printed by the artist: 8.5x11 are $39. 11x17 are $49, and 13x19 are $65. Click on the "Photography" page at the top.
