Resident Artist

Edward Lane McCartney

Medium: Art Jeweler
Residency: January 1, 2005–
January 1, 2006

Edward McCartney is an artist living and creating in Houston, Texas. His educational and work background is in interior design and space planning. For the past ten years, he has honed his craft as an art jeweler, and much of his work involves pushing the boundaries of body adornment and traditional ornament. Edward states, “When the narrative is requisite, I find expression in both small and large sculptural forms, often with the preciousness, detail, or vocabulary of the jeweler’s eye. I adore the transformation of materials and wish to provoke new ways of seeing, within myself and the viewer who participates in my work.” Edward is active within a community of artists, collectors, and galleries locally and nationally.
