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 reading, anthropology/archaeology, photography, music, hiking, social media/networking, and listening to pod casts.

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.
