Art Director Mariam Zohra’s response regarding her choice for #2:

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

sm-02-24-2016

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.
