Edwin is a self-taught artist who’s been passionate about various forms of expression ever since he realized he could hold a crayon. Born in the Lake Victoria coastal city of Kisumu located in Nairobi, Kenya, art has always been top-of-mind for as long as he could remember. Even with a house full of siblings — totaling six in all, dreams of becoming a professional artist was always near and dear.
Throughout Edwin’s childhood his teachers would notice notebooks full of doodles and sketches. This practice followed him into his college years. Even as a Computer Science major, he could not relinquish the passion. After graduation and attaining certifications in a variety of visual arts platforms to display his digital work, he set-off to follow his passion by publishing a set of custom playing cards using ink, pencil and soft pastels.
Edwin is a generational talent who continues to explore, including new pathways like 3D and Game Development as a media. In addition to his art, he is a participant and staff member of an African consortium that celebrates and cultivates local and international innovation.
