Elaine Ford

Elaine studied at Winchester School of Art, where she graduated with a Master’s Degree in Fine Art. She works from her own Studio based in South Devon. Her evocative paintings of Land, Sea and Sky are inspired by the natural world and are combined with imagination and memory. Influenced by the emotive swirling paintings of the sea by JMW Turner and Gustave Courbet, Elaine’s work is driven by the desire to capture the sense of place and deep and emotional responses that the sea and landscape can evoke, whilst leading the viewer on a visual journey.
The use of colour, mark making and texture are integral to her works, which have a constant energy, atmosphere and movement to them. She is fascinated at the unpredictability of the natural world, often changing in an instant, whether it be the light, sky, landscape or sea.
Elaine has work in many private collections in the UK, Germany, Belgium and the USA.
