Amy Ward
Visual Artist and Art Advocate
Indianapolis, Indiana

This website is a collection of a celebrated decade. My journey is a constant effort of balance between the creation of original art work and my administration roles.

After living in a variety of US cities I returned to my hometown state of Indiana, ended a long stint in the marketing industry, and was hired in 2012 by a Los Angeles based national arts organization as the Director and city chapter founder of RAW: Natural born artists.

I have since been employed by unique galleries and I'm currently contracted as a freelance administrator that aids with venue booking, networking, public relations, website & social media maintenance, exhibit and event productions for a collective group of artists of all backgrounds.


 

S imultaneously, I'm a self-taught painter with works sold to art collectors across the country.   I produce innovative paintings that demonstrate an unrivaled sense of color and form.

“Within any painting you can appreciate dozens of layers of activity. The sum total is balanced and thoughtful, bringing not only a sense of peace, but also a compulsion. The magic is that this reminiscence will be different for every individual. This is the spiritual connection that you make with the painting on a very personal level. You may like a particular piece very much and never know what the attraction really is"





 

 “We are hardwired with the desire to find familiar shapes and objects even when there are no literal characters.”


 




 

 Ward shares that  collectors find new and interesting things in the composition that they hadn’t noticed or connected to the first time they saw it.   “These are paintings to interact with. The artwork created is not simple, in fact, there is no end of discoveries to be found in any one painting.  It takes time to grow to love every nuance of every stroke, yet there is an immediate infatuation that will compel a collector to take it home and begin to fall in love.”
