Edward Aldrich: Wildlife Painter


For over 25 years, Edward Aldrich has constantly striven to create art that speaks to the wonders of the natural world as well as the sheer pleasure of painting. Aldrich is dedicated to reaching beyond the rendering of wildlife and the natural world; his belief is that conveying the inherent being of an animal is integral to his art. He paints primarily in oil and travels the world to view, sketch, and photograph his subjects.
