First thing one notices about C. Clay-Ward’s work is her versatility in mediums, subjects and styles.

“A piece will tell me how it wants to be created. Sometimes it is an object before me, sometimes it is a vista and sometimes it is a good story that inspires. I’ve learned to listen, allow the process to flow and take on a life of its own.”
