Edin has loved to paint since given her first set of oils when she was 8
years of age. After painting with oils for a number of years she decided
that watercolors offered much more opportunity for expression and
creativity. She focuses on design, value and color in her paintings. Her
subjects come from all over the world. Some are painted on location and
others are studio paintings. Color has become her mantra as she continues to
use pure color and lets the color run together to create layers of pure
color directly on the paper. Her intent is to draw the viewer into the
painting with the light as well as with dramatic color.
