British wildlife artist Jane Ford trained at the Burslem School of Art under Arthur Berry moving to completing an apprenticeship in graphics and design at the Wedgwood Printing works in Burslem, Stoke on Trent. She has gone on to be one of the best British wildlife artists mixing in elements of steampunk.
Now living in Kent she exhibits and sells across the country represented by a number of established galleries as well as regular exhibitions in London and mostly the south east. Barewall are delighted to represent Jane Ford as her Staffordshire gallery. We are of course based in Burslem which no doubt gave rise to her Northern humour cited in her the below:
"With an all consuming passion for British Wildlife combined with a quirky, dark, Northern sense of humour, the main subject of each painting is transformed from a natural pose into a completely obscure and unusual setting.
With a natural leaning towards the Gothic Genre which includes Victorian engines, optical and astronomical instruments and even Medieval inventions to add to the mix.
The great diversity of British wildlife and the imagination of connecting birds and animals with unrelated objects opens up endless possibilities for paintings.The whole is brought together with the naming of the work……it’s all in the title."
