Giles Ward is a leading sea life and natural world artist based in the Wye Valley. Originally from Yorkshire he studied fine art at Sheffield before moving to Exeter to study Illustration and Design. His work is exhibited in galleries throughout the UK and overseas.

Experimentation is at the heart of Giles’ painting. Working pre-dominantly in oils his canvases take on other-worldly textures with the addition of acrylics, inks, spray paint, varnishes and anything else he can lay his hands on. He is inspired by the natural world and examines the hidden worlds of colour and texture found in nature’s close-up detail.
