BORN IN CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, EDWARD BESS WOULD DISCOVER HIS MUSE EARLY ON. THE ALLURE OF BEAUTY INSPIRED HIS AESTHETIC AFFINITIES FOR AS EARLY AS HE CAN REMEMBER, AN AUSPICIOUS GLIMPSE INTO HIS FUTURE CRAFT. EVEN AS A YOUNG BOY, EDWARD’S MOTHER, AND THREE SISTERS SOUGHT HIS PERSPECTIVE ON WHAT HE DEEMED TO LOOK BEST, LONG BEFORE HE WOULD GO ON TO SHARE HIS BEAUTY VISION WITH THE WORLD.
