Greta Ward


Medium: Oil & Cold Wax

Primarily an oil painter, Greta also works with cold wax and oil, watercolors, assemblage, and stained glass. Greta studied under the inimitable Rebecca Crowell, in both the US and Italy, learning about cold wax and its myriad applications to fine art. The process of adding wax and pigment, and then subtracting selectively through scraping, solvents, and other tools seems, the perfect artistic analogy for a life well-lived.

“I believe all work is an expression of the innate urge to connect,  and that the stories they tell are important. My favorite painting is always the one that just came off the easel. I love hearing what other people see in my work since the psychology of frame of reference and point of view fascinates me. We all bring something new and wondrous with us to a piece when we view it.”  – Greta Ward
