Patricia Rose Ford

Since childhood, drawing, coloring and painting have always been my passion. While Social Work was my major in college, painting continued to be my first love and I completed a minor in Fine Art. My career as a social worker was fulfilling, but ways wanted to have more time to paint. In 2003, I retired from social work and began to apply my love for art, now as a fulltime artist. My work has been exhibited in local and national juried shows throughout the U.S. and I have received a number of awards and honors from these exhibitions.

As a landscape painter, I love the great outdoors, particularly the scenes of the southwestern deserts and coastlines. I enjoy being in nature, looking at a beautiful scene, and translating the emotions of what I see onto the paper. My hope is that I am able to convey in my art, the feelings of joy and tranquility that I experience when painting. My mediums are pastel, watercolors & watercolor collage; however my current work is mostly Plein Air Pastel.
