Martha Ford is a young Illustrator based in Bristol.
Since graduating with a degree in Animation in 2010, moving to Bristol and working on Aardman’s “Itch of the Golden Nit”, Martha joined our collective and has been working on her illustration portfolio.
Inspired by illustrators such as James Jean, Arthur Rackham and Mary Blair, and her many many books, she has a keen interest in storytelling and the surreal. Much of her work explores people and their place within nature, themes of isolation and the effects and passage of time.
Although adept at using digital techniques, she has a particular fondness for inks, acrylics, fineliner pens, handmade textures and 2b pencils.
She is currently training as a teacher, working on building her professional portfolio, taking part in exhibitions and projects and generally expanding her skill base. She is always open to suggestions for new projects or collaborations.
