Statement

Jessica Ward was born in Agana, Guam in 1982. She has traveled and lived around the world because her father was an Air Force officer. As a child Ward could always be found sketching and drawing and aspired to become an artist when she grew up. She attended Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan and received a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art-Drawing with a minor in Illustration. Ward’s art work is inspired by eating disorders, which she herself has struggled with with since adolescence. Working exclusively in the drawing medium, she uses graphite, color pencils and chalk pastels on paper. She had her first gallery show in 2008, and has been exhibiting her work internationally since.
