Born to the serene and simple life of a small Ohio farm, surrounded by beautiful flowers and bountiful gardens, Jan Ford recounts her youth through lyrical recreations of those familiar subjects.
Jan's array of artwork includes lush flower gardens, floral still-life images filled with lace and the occasional antique, and vegetables from the local farmer's market. Each piece invokes different musical moods and the floral forms themselves conduct their own song.
Jan studied art at Ohio State University and The Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia, as well as with private instructors. Since the onset of her career over 30 years ago, Jan has established a reputation for her expert handling of the medium with special interest taken to beautiful color development. Her watercolors sing with color, clarity and brilliance, always rich and luminous.
