Said About Me


Edna is constantly developing new viewpoints. She invites investigation of the canvas with her choice of color and placement of shapes.

Jesse Casman, Oppkey – Developer Relations, San Francisco, CA

The range of Edna’s work is quite extraordinary, the colors and patterns immediately capture one’s attention, a visceral response. Whenever I was with Edna, I felt a peacefulness, an intensity, and a wholeness.
