Art by Ed Kuris
Features on the
February 2017 poster
of Surrey Muse


This particular painting was chosen
by Art director Mariam Zohra
from four paintings
selected by Surrey Muse volunteers
from Ed’s Facebook page

ed-kuris-1 #1

ed-kuris-2 #2

ed-kuris-3 #3

ed-kuris-4 #4

Art Director’s first choice was #2 but she let it go because of the quality of the photograph and no time to request another image.
But, we LOVE the one chosen, it’s an amazing face of a woman or the face of an amazing woman.
Thank you, Ed, for letting us feature it on Surrey Muse poster.
