Ward Jene Stroud
A modern renaissance man…

Some of Ward’s earliest memories are of sitting with his mother, a Yaqui Indian Native, making music and drawing. She would make a small scribble on a piece of paper and
challenge him to “make something” from it.  She inspired, through her encouragement of vision and imagination, Ward’s joy and love of art.

Artist Statement
“In every moment of our lives, everything we do and who we are is a culmination of what we have experienced. I have assembled some of life’s greatest lessons working as a professional artist, musician, photographer, and dancer. My life’s body of work, lessons, and experiences is the well that I draw from in order to create. It is my “butterfly-chasing, dreamer” journey.
Please join me!” / Ward Jene Stroud
