Artist Jay Bryant Ward invites us to follow his subjects as they look heavenward and remember what matters most - the life, mission, and teachings of Jesus Christ. Jay began early in his pursuit of artistic talents. Before graduating from high school he was the recipient of multiple national art awards for his illustrative works. Jay received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Brigham Young University and was pleased to have studied under Leon Parson, Robert Barrett, Richard Hull, Don Seegmiller and others, including the world renowned painter Richard Schmid. He and his beautiful wife, Jileen, currently reside in South Jordan, Utah with their four children. In 2011 Jay was elected as the founding president of the Inspirational Art Association. He continues to teach and promote the role of art in teaching values.
