Contemporary Art




Today I wanted to reach out to you guys and show you my Mum’s amazing Art work. Frankie calls her NaNa Bear but her name is Claire Ward and aswell as being the best NaNa she’s an Amazing artist if I do say so myself. I’m going to call NaNa,  Claire during this blog as it will read better…. Even though this is going to be rather strange for me!!

Growing up Claire always loved anything to do with art and in 2011 she finally fulfilled her life long dream and recieved a first degree in Fine Art at Aberystwyth University.

I really belive that my Mum’s work is fantastic and that’s why I wanted to write this post today to show you all.

Here are my favourite art pieces:


Here is some of Claire’s work hanging in my home:

All Art Work is also lovingly framed by  Claire herself in her studio.

Here is a statement from the website:


‘My work explores the root of identity by investigating the missing pieces found in matriarchal land cultures. Combining this with the interrogation of my own internal landscape, deeply influenced by a western patriarchal upbringing, the work engages in the discovery of ‘all things connected’ and the idea of ‘balance’.

Here are Claire’s art pieces in an Exhibition mounted on alluminum to create a stunning finished piece.

I feel Claire has created a modern innovative website creating a beautiful gallery of not just Art but also the written content.
