Ed was born in Springfield, Ohio where he currently lives with his wife and two children. Being a huge comic book nerd, Ed spent many hours lingering at his local comic book shop. His artsy fartsy nature motivated the shop owner to ask Ed to try his hand at repairing and repainting a few statues...fate had stepped in. Ed started painting professionally in 2010 on a part time basis and in 2015 began working as a full time freelance artist. He currently works for various companies.
