Biography from a third party submitted on 07/16/2009:
Paula Ann Ford was raised in a small town in upstate New York where the landscapes are absolutely breathtaking.  Having moved away from the northeast in her 40's, and missing the beautiful landscapes of that area, Ford turned to art in 2000, first studying under Kay Walton of Texas, and then Paul Friske, PSA, also from Texas.  She started painting in acrylics and oils and then in January of 2004  discovered and fell in love with soft pastels.

Paula Ford has been a Guide in the Pastel Forum of Wetcanvas.com for several years, and has been a featured artist on several websites.  She won the Silver Medal Award in the 2007 Arts for the Parks online competition for her painting Nick's Lake.

Because of her love for teaching, Ford has recently started giving demonstrations, teaching workshops, and giving private classes.  Her workshops focus on the beginning pastel artist.  Her classes include a handout and related discussion on resources for supplies online, interesting websites, artists’ and art community websites.  She also discusses safety while using pastels, how to properly clean pastels, the pros and cons of using fixative, mounting and framing pastel paintings with a demonstration, working with photographs and how to simplify the landscape, the importance of toning, thumbnail sketches, preliminary charcoal sketches, and underpaintings.  She dedicates several hours of each workshop to hands on, step by step instruction.  Students will learn the rules of landscapes and leave the classroom with a finished piece of art.  At the end of each workshop, Ford takes class photos for her website.

Artist Statement:
Landscapes are my chosen subjects because I have always been amazed at the way nature arranges its compositions into scenes that capture my imagination and stay in my memories.  Therefore, my paintings become keepsakes of places from our journeys. They represent happy times and peaceful daydreams experienced as they have permeated our senses through the memories of fresh mountain breezes, fragrant wild flowers, and the changing seasons. And so, as the historian records past events, so shall I record the ever changing landscapes of our time and leave souvenirs for all to be reminded of the places visited in our travels.
