Amy Ward is an elementary art teacher and an emerging artist who works largely in pen & ink and watercolor. Her ideas consistently deal with puzzles of process and composition, as well as beauty, color, texture, translucence, sight and light. Her process is one of constant exploration… The work leads the way. The stories tell themselves. Amy’s best work is made in a state of gratitude, grace and play. She is currently engaged in a series entitled #100daysofplace: realistic and abstract works that celebrate and encourage preservation of literal and metaphorical sacred places.
