MARILYN MONROE SEEN IN LONDON...
Ed's mosaic of Marilyn made from art materials and toys was a hit with visitors to the Toy Fair at Earl's Court in London.
The 150x150cm work uses hundreds of children's items for art and creativity made by Galt Toys.
It was unveiled by BBC TV art and antiques expert Tim Wonnacott who stated his admiration for Ed's mosaic work.
The mosaic was auctioned for more than £2000 with proceeds going to a children's charity.
Ed says: ' This was a great thing to be involved in.
' I always enjoy working with new materials and the toys and art materials provided a surprisingly good palette for creating a colourful Warhol-esque portrait of Marilyn.
'Some of the materials like pipe cleaners and crepe paper took me back to my childhood, recalling the fun I had making collages with them.'
