Ed Swaim is a native of Thomasville, North Carolina and has made Winston-Salem his home since 1962.

Ed's interest in art began at a very early age when his mother showed him how to draw a song bird. Art has always been an important part of his life and something that always came natural to him.

After graduating from high school, Ed attended the Harris Advertising School of Art in Nashville, TN. He spent his professional career at R.J. Reynolds in graphic arts.

Ed's artistic interests include portraits, nature, wild life, sporting art, homes and landscapes. Retirement has allowed the time to work with fine art and sculpture. Watercolor, acrylic, oil and clay are his mediums.

Commissions are often done, usually home places that hold fond memories for clients. Original works and prints are available, including Old Salem.

Ed enjoys being an artist and the creative expressions that it allows. Each painting is a new adventure in the creative process.
