Originally from Massachusetts, Heather Ward has lived in Los Alamos for more than 10 years. She strives to create highly realistic drawings of animals, both wild and domestic, and pushes her media to the limits to achieve the effects she wants. Preferring to work with dry media, her favorites are charcoal, graphite, pyrography and scratchboard.

Scratchboard is a subtractive medium, similar to carving, where material is removed to create the art.
