Peter Edwards

Born 1955.

Edwards’ interest in drawing, from an early age, led to his decision to go to Art School and pursue a career in art.   He studied art during the 70’s when figurative art was relatively unpopular but he stuck with it and developed his true vocation, portrait painting.   Edwards is perhaps best known for portraits hanging in the National Portrait Gallery, in particular those of Sir Bobby Charlton, Seamus Heaney and Kazuo Ishiguro .

Edwards does not hope to create an exact likeness of his sitter but rather provide his own version, imbued with character and personality.
