Hello! My name is Loni Edwards and welcome to my site.

I have been drawing all of my life; it came as natural as walking to me. Throughout school, the art classes were most inspirational for me. I am trained in acrylics, watercolor, graphic design, Photoshop, Sketchbook Pro, pen and ink, colored pencil, and graphite. My other interests are anthropology, reading, archaeology, forensics, computers, writing, playing my guitar, reading comics, listening to music, and geo-caching.


Artist Statement:

What I want people to see in my art is joy and humor. I always try to have my characters show emotion.  I like to use vibrant, bold colors to convey the spirit of my work. Previous clients have stated that my art is eye-catching and fun. My clients have complimented me on my work ethic, stating that I am efficient and very easy to work with.
