A first-generation artist, Edward was born in Guruve, Zimbabwe, in 1935. He spent his childhood as a hunter and then as a carpenter. Edward began sculpting in the early 1970s and with the help of Tom Bloomfield, founder of the Tengenenge Sculpture community, he became one of Zimbabwe’s top artists.


He later joined the National Gallery as a member, practicing sculpting for more than 20 years. His works can be seen displayed in Galleries and Museums worldwide in countries like Germany, the USA, Canada, Britain, Holland, Asia, France, and the rest of Europe. His work is in collections worldwide.
