Ed Challenger

by Dana Kester-McCabe

Ed Challenger spent his early art career as an art director in the Philadelphia area and then as an art teacher at the York Academy of Arts in south central Pennsylvania. Making fine art became a full time obsession when he retired and moved to Bishopville on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Ed is most well known for two distinctly different painting styles: impressionist landscapes and abstracts.

Ed is interested in almost every form of fine art and shows profficiency at any that he has tried. Inspired by Andrew Wyeth, Ed is currently mastering the very challenging medium of egg tempera.

Ed says that he loves the creative process.Through each work of art his sunny gentle personality shines through which makes his work highly collectable.

Ed's work can be seen locally at Bishop's Stock in Snow Hill, Maryland: and at his website:
