About the Artist

Brin Edwards’ fascination with the natural world began during early childhood in Singapore, where he was captivated by the colourful tropical species in his back garden. At university he studied towards a career in scientific research, however he soon realised that his interest was more in the visual than the theoretical. He gradually started to get his illustrations published and built up a folio of work for a variety of UK and European book and magazine publishers. In recent years he has developed a more personal and expressive way of depicting the natural world in his oil paintings. This looser, more atmospheric approach acts as an antidote to the precision of his illustration work. Now living and working in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, much of the inspiration for Brin’s paintings comes from close to home.
