Ford studied art at the University of Mississippi and began his career as a photographer. In the early 90's he felt a compelling urge to return to painting and took a year hiatus to travel the world seeking inspiration. He found tremendous fulfillment creating contemporary landscapes found in the stunning horizons found during his travels. He lets layers of paint-acrylics on canvas - drip and flow, just letting things happen. Ford lives and paints in both Santa Fe, New Mexico and Roswell, Georgia.
