Edward describes his approach to his artwork in his own words...
"From an early age I showed a keen interest in art, which was influenced by my mother who was then a handicraft teacher. I did start painting on my own since 1997 and art has become part of my daily life. I do enjoy painting potraits and abstracts. My abstracts are from memory free from any idea, and what I produce must be art or must respond in any way or any standard. As a painter I feel a responsibility to bring the public to a greater conciousness of the relation between art and life. Also, to raise the awareness of self or the undercurrent within each and everyone through my work"
All Afromats slipmats are industry standard and are handmade from 16 oz compressed premium polyester felt.
