Jay Bryant Ward - An Artist With A Vision

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Artist Jay Bryant Ward, a talented artist known for his

paintings of Jesus and children, was raised in Idaho Falls,

Idaho.  From a very early
age, Jay displayed a love for

drawing and was encouraged to pursue his artistic talents

by a very supportive family. 
Jay’s illustration work gained

him an Honored Student Award and three national art

awards for his paintings and illustrations, all before leaving

High School.

Jay earned a Bachelor of Fine Art with an emphasis in

illustration. He has studied under such noted artists as Leon

Parson, Robert Barrett, Richard Hull, and Don Seegmiller.

A highlight of Jay’s growth as an artist was to receive

instruction from the world-renowned painter, Richard

Schmid, at a workshop in Scottsdale, Arizona.  It was through

this mentorship that Jay developed a clearer understanding of

the artistic principles and how to use them to better

communicate through his art.

Jay now has over a decade of experience as a freelance artist

and he shares his time and his expertise by teaching both

digital and traditional art classes at a local college. He has

dedicated himself wholeheartedly to his painting career and

hopes to share an artistic magic that will warm the hearts and

uplift the souls of all who experience his work.
