Biography   Velox Ward


/ WAURD /    click to hear
Velox Ward, Sr. was a self-taught memory painter.  In 1960, Ward began painting at age 59 at the request of his family.  Like many other great Folk artists, Ward turned to his memories of growing up in rural East Texas during the early part of the twentieth century.
