Edwin Lockridge joined the POVA Artist Collective in May, 2019. When asked to describe what he enjoys about making art Edwin highlights the act of creation itself saying, "Creating, creating, creating! It places me below God but above the angels." A Nashville native, Edwin has been experiencing homelessness for 2 years spending most of his nights in local parks. Edwin is a mixed media artist with over a half century of experience. He's most excited about using the income generated by his art sales to reinvest in his craft.
