Paintings by Robert Ward
A Snapshot intro
I now live with my wife Gina in South Pembrokeshire, Wales, but was born and raised in the old heavily industrial "Black Country" of the West Midlands to a wonderful working class family.
I Have painted and drawn since my earliest days with the main two interests in life, especially the early years, being "Art" and a need to know how things worked, to my great surprise I won a prize for art during my last year at school.
Leaving school at fifteen I had the good fortune to be offered an electrical engineering apprenticeship, which meant painting, drawing had to become a spare time occupation, one pursued, except for a break of about ten years, throughout my working life.
I am, fortunately or unfortunately depending on your point of view, completely self taught, my paintings cover a wide range of subjects, normally things that interest me at the time, all are in oil and generally illustrative.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.
