"There are others who will always tell us that we are wrong. It's better, safer, easier to stay where we are. But it's only when we stretch our wings and fly that we find out what we are really capable of achieving. It's only when we risk falling that we are truly able to rise."


ARTIST BACKGROUND

Edward Monkton is the alter ego of Oxford University graduate, Giles Andreae. Giles began his artistic career as the creator of the successful cartoon character, Purple Ronnie. Sales of 80 million greeting cards and 5 million books have made him Britain's best-selling living poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture.

His Edward Monkton persona reveals a deeper, more philosophical approach to life and packs a much greater emotional impact.

Monkton's work is as simple as it is profound-as philosophical as it is decorative. He takes on the big subjects that have fascinated artists and writers through the centuries...love, happiness, truth, beauty, the struggle of the soul to create meaning out of life, and gives them his own unique twist. Wry humor, resonant, evocative wording and a bold, graphic visual style are the hallmarks of this wistful, playful artist/poet.
