John Ward, Brandon Member Since May 2010 Artist Statement I've been doing art for as long as I can remember. In my younger years I did mostly pencil and ink drawings. I trained as a draftsman in college and went to work in transportation design. For the next 28 years, most of my drawings were done on the drafting table or computer and were usually work related. Last year I decided to take a beginners painting class. I don't really enjoy the buying of supplies and the clean-up of real painting. Then I discovered computer (digital) painting and I really love it. I also enjoy wood burning art.
