ABOUT THE ARTIST

Basil Ede is regarded by many as the foremost painter of birds of all time. He began his art career by drawing cartoons and caricatures. During his teens and early twenties, he merged his love for birds with his rapidly developing artistic talent. With his first public exhibition in 1958, his works became a milestone in the history of bird painting. Much of his field research has taken place in a belt stretching from Maryland, down through Florida and across to Texas. He supplements these field sightings with detailed study at natural history museums. Ede has garnered many national and international honors and, in 1992, was awarded the first Lifetime Achievement Award ever presented by the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition.
