ABOUT EDWARD 
                                   
I have lived in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts for the last 35 years. My artistic influences include post-modern architecture, traditional Japanese architecture, modernist sculpture, and contemporary jazz. When I am not producing sawdust, I enjoy bird watching, walking on quiet country roads with my family, and working in my vegetable garden.
