About the Artist
Ed Robinson grew up in a small farming community near the beautiful Finger Lakes of New York State. Roaming over a couple thousand acres of fields, forests, ponds and wetlands became the foundation for Ed’s love of wild creatures and the outdoors. With the degrees in management and marketing, Ed spent his career working in the fields of photography, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and aquaculture. His assignments included stints in Mexico, Australia, Singapore and 14 years in England.
Ed and his wife, Mary, live on Orr’s Island in Harpswell enjoying the friendly people and beautiful places in the state, and activities such as lobstering, hiking, fly fishing and hunting. In 2004, Ed realized a dream by acquiring an old farm in central new York where he could pursue his interests in wildlife habitat management. He now spends many weeks each year in the woods and fields, planting trees, shrubs and food plots, while creating forest openings and water features to increase the carrying capacity of the land for wildlife.
in his spare time, Ed serves on the board of trustees of the Harpswell Heritage Land trust, is a board member of Maine Operation Game Thief and is a member of the Nor’easters Barbershop Chorus.
