VIDEO: Sterling Edwards began his career as a police officer and firefighter. After he retired, he decided to turn his passion for art into a full-time job. Now, he travels around the world teaching people the basics of art and painting. Today he visited Sioux City to share his knowledge and experience. Sterling Edwards served as both a police officer and firefighter for over 20 years. However, painting has been his passion since he was young, and after retiring from the force, he decided to make a career out of it. “I’ve been painting since I was 12,” said Edwards. “It’s always been just something I did for enjoyment, as a hobby. And even when I was a police officer I had pieces in galleries and so forth. And when I got out of police work, I opened a small gallery and started teaching classes, which helped pay the bills for the gallery."
