J-N-Ward

I live and work in the beautiful Arkansas Ozarks. After receiving my bachelor's degree in art history and studio art, I spent time working with the Curator of Northwest Art at the Portland Art Museum and working as a docent for the Arkansas Arts Center. Although I enjoyed working with museums, I enjoy working on my own art even more.

My artwork comes from figuring out my identity in different contexts and thinking about my place in nature. I'm an avid reader, I enjoy cooking, and I love to nerd out about artists' materials. Mostly, though, I just like to sit on the porch with a good friend, my dogs, and enjoy the evening together.
