ARTIST STATEMENT

Since 2015, artist Britt Ford has been mastering her method of thermographic embossed artwork. Ford has created thousands of wonderful personalized unique treasures. Ford has displayed her work at The Showcase, New Works and 12’’x12’’ shows and continues to display her work in group shows today. 

Inspired by her surroundings, Ford wanted to incorporate what she loved, into larger spatial surroundings. Ford has obtained inspiration from fauna spotted on her travels and around town in Hoboken, N.J.  At times walking through Hoboken, Ford’s creative art process is activated by 300 years of history and architecture. The exquisite historical preservation of the buildings facades and the timelessness of the beauty inspire the clean lines and elegance of her work. 

Ford's relationship with the glue and embossing powder melting together brings her senses in line and provide tranquility and peace. The uncertainty of how the melting of two materials will result really encapsulates how unique the process is. 

Utilizing thermographic embossing like no other has done before, Ford is pioneering the next step through a new method. Ford's art starts from her desire to show others what she has uncovered to find truly beautiful and create an irreplaceable masterpiece.
