Original work available by Fay Davis Edwards

As a native of the barrier islands on the coast of North Carolina, Fay Davis Edwards centers her work primarily on environmental concerns and climate change. Specifically, she works with coastal residents to collect narratives and share stories of sea level rise.


Citing influence from artists such as Mel Chin, Laurie Anderson, and Sonya Clark, Fay works across disciplines employing painting, photography, installation, projection, and community engagement projects to chronicle these personal narratives. She exhibits her work regionally, regularly teaches workshops and classes, and is an artistic contributor to MilePost Magazine.

Fay earned her BFA from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, and her MFA from Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine. Her home and studio are located on Roanoke Island, which she shares with a variety of critters including a lively flock of chickens and four very opinionated cats.
