Brin Edwards b. 1957

Brin has always been fascinated by the natural world and has had a compulsion to draw and paint wildlife for as long as he can remember. His interest in birds dates from his early childhood spent in Singapore where he was captivated by the colourful tropical species in his back garden.


Brin Edwards has had his illustrations published and built up for a variety of UK and European book and magazine publishers. In recent years Brin has developed a more personal and expressive way of depicting the natural world in his oil paintings. He says, Brin lives and work in Suffolk and much of the inspiration for his paintings comes from close to home. In 1985 Brin spent a month in Zimbabwe travelling around the country visiting game reserves and watching wildlife. 


He has recently started to explore the possibilities of creating works from memory alone, to try to set down the images in his head which have become altered and abstracted with the passage of time. These paintings in the Gallery today convey images in his head, from direct memories of his travels.
