All his life Douglas Edwards has had a paint brush in his hands. "I have used color and light to express everything in my life. It is my way to deal with the happiness, sadness, grief and healing of life and to try to reach serenity and fulfillment. Each painting brings me something new, as a chapter in a book or a pattern of thought and nature. I endeavor to share my expression of serenity on canvas".
His oil paintings are sold in galleries across North America and has had shows in England, Italy, Sweden and Japan. He has taught art extensively over the years. His work is in many prominent private and public collections. He now makes his home in Hamilton, Ontario.
