Elaine Newington Ward – Creative Writing 1

Elaine Ward OCA        Creative Arts student         elaine520885

About me.

I have been a teacher and I have been a Garden Designer, and now I do Art.

I am enjoying the Creative Arts programme although Illustration 1 is only my second course. I completed the CAT course last year.

I am particularly enjoying working on projects which I can do wrong and then have time to figure out the right way of doing it.  Although I am a strong subscriber to the philosophy than any finished ‘work of art’ cannot be ‘wrong’. However, Illustration is different as it is usually for a client so has parameters.

I live in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with stunning views in every direction, an inspiration for any artist. I am married and have grown-up children.
We have two lovely Golden Doodle dogs who need long walks.

Please enjoy looking at my work, I have approached it with an open mind and tried as many different ideas and techniques as was practical in an attempt to widen my expertise and not rely on methodologies which which I am familiar.
