Ward makes kinetic toy sculptures from used stuffed animals, music boxes, and electronic gadgets. Ward also creates large-scale outdoor sculpture, using her small toy sculptures as models. Last fall she installed one of her large-scale sculptures for permanent display at Western Sculpture Park in downtown St. Paul.
