Edie didn't start exhibiting until she lived in Nashville, TN where she also started painting with acrylics.
Most of her work is figurative or imaginative.Her use of color is bold and vibrant.
From her work emanates a certain warmth and happiness, the shapes are often simplistic and the paintings have a lyrical quality.
Her work has been quoted as naive, folk-ish, impressionist.
Edie's influences range from the cities she has lived in to everyday life to more ethereal inspirations like music and dreams.
Some famous artists that she admires are Chagall, Karel Appel, van Gogh, J.W. Waterhouse, Dali, Klimt among many more.
Now living and working in New York City, Edie devotes most of her time to painting and experiments with styles and mediums.
Stylistically she has been experimenting with more abstract paintings as well as portaits.
Edie also paints live at events throughout the city, capturing the feel of an event over the course of the event.
