Barbara Ward was born in a small rural town in Southern Alberta Canada.  She spent her youth outdoors where her favorite activities were hiking, skiing, riding her crazy Arabian mare across the prairies, and swimming in the cold glacial Canadian lakes. Although she was passionate about art and drawing from an early age, her life took an interesting detour. Her husband, a UPS driver, was laid up for several months because of knee replacements. Because of this she was recruited as an Art Director in the commercial film world. She began to do architectural  renderings, choose the paint colors, fabric, floor coverings ,  landscaping concepts , signage, faux painting, design work, props, and do the  decorating  and shopping.
