ARTIST STATEMENTI love to paint! I love to see the play of light on a field or a face ... to get lost in the shadow cast by a tree or a standing figure. Hopefully, the images I'm drawn to will speak to the viewer as well. BIOGRAPHYB.V.Ward (Bernie), is a representational/impressionist style artist who paints primarily in oils and acrylics. She credits living in Europe as a young woman, for her love of landscape painting and a passion for observing the human dynamic for her love of painting the human form. Her work ranges from landscape and still life to figurative ... from cliff houses to horse farms to the girls at Annie's Cafe ... to what ever tugs at her imagination. Born in NJ, Bernie started drawing at very early age. With no formal training or direction she continued drawing through her teen years. During this time, living just outside Nuremberg, Germany, she received local recognition for the elaborate Christmas scenes she painted on the large windows of the family residence. Bernie was in her early twenties, with toddlers in tow, when she received her first formal art instruction via, The Famous Artist School, a gift from her loving mother-in-law. She continued on to other formal art training, while at the same time, creating a successful pen & ink “Print” series (Chicago Landmarks), sold and promoted by major Michigan Avenue retailers (Marshall Field‘s, etc.). Having completed a major stint in the "Corporate” arena, this artist is thrilled to be once again fully focused on her passion, her art. Bernie resides northwest of Chicago and exhibits in area shows as well as Chicago North Suburban and North Shore Galleries.
