Ian Edwards’ journey as a sculptor began when he left school aged 16 and began an apprenticeship.
"The day I walked into the woodcarving shop everything changed. I said to myself these are my people. I was home." He set up his own studio in his early 20s.
He sculpted wildlife and figurative sculptures. Over time, he realised that he wanted his work to convey a deeper meaning.
"I felt that it was my life’s purpose to create and sculpt evocative figures. My goal was to create works that were informed by meaning and insight."
