Ed Hicks Biography

Originally from Staten Is., NY, Ive lived in New Jersey since the 60s. Went back to College at age 45 and got re-interested in Art. I taught myself to paint using Oils and Pastels and have never looked back.

My true love is portraiture and figurative work, which Iíve done for 20 years. Ive also been teaching pastel painting for ten years.

Four years ago the Faeries found me and invited me into their fantastic and magical world.. Now I paint them almost exclusively.
