Beauty from the Ashes

Beauty from the Ashes

Artist’s Statement I chose the name “Beauty from the Ashes” because it resonated with me as a poignant description of my life and my artistic journey. Before I rediscovered my creativity, I lived a very small and isolated life. When I began to make art again (after years of repressing it), the thought never crossed […]

His son, Robert Boyd Ward, became a first generation American success story, founding the Ward Baking […]
