Artist Main Picture

Terri Ford is a Distinguished Pastelist with the Pastel Society of the West Coast. She was inducted into the IAPS Master Circle in 2007, and is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America. Her work has appeared in The Pastel Journal, Amercian Artist, The Artists’s Magazine, International Artist, Plein Air New Mexico, The Richeson 75 Series and the Best of Pastel by Kennedy Publications.

Both a studio and plein air painter, Ford's subjects are primarily landscapes but also include architecture...bridges, barns, bell towers, missions, turrets and spires. Her paintings depict light conditions and atmosphere with evocative color and sensitivite but powerful strokes. Ford is often simply recording the extraordinary effect that light can bestow on seemingly oridinary things.

Ford is an enthusiastic and knowledgable instructor. She teaches workshops in the US and abroad and also provides private instruction.

"My passion for pastels never subsides. It becomes more intense as I continue my journey with them. The very tactile nature of pastel in hand, the surface, with nothing in between continues to excite me. My work is driven by drama of light, and a poetic resonance in a subject.”
