Ward believes "Who we are, and everything that we do and create in every moment of our lives is a culmination of what we have learned, done, and experienced on our life's journey."
This award winning artist has assembled, in his many years, some of life's greatest lessons working as a professional - figure skater, choreographer and coach, graphic artist, fine artist, singer/songwriter/musician, published photographer, dancer, art instructor, and entrepreneur. Actually, there's a lot more he’s done, but who would believe it?
His life's body of work, hard-won lessons, triumphs, tragedies and experiences are the wells that he draws from to create art. Ward is a juried member of both the WSO (Watercolor Society of Oregon) and the Oregon society of Artists (OSA) where he is on permanent staff and teaches a weekly class. Ward has had numerous one-man exhibits, his work has been featured in magazines both national and international and he has produced three full featured Instructional DVDs/Videos, titled "Brusho and Beyond.” Ward speaks at national conventions as an expert and demos for both national and international art companies and has also written several published articles on watercolor and Brusho. Ward also has several popular and highly-viewed YouTube videos.
...But if you were to ask him about any of it he would say "I'm just a beginner with a child-like wonder at it all"
