Event Details

Meet Elaine Ford our newest artist and view her extraordinary work in her solo exhibition: Energy & Movement.

Elaine studied Fine Art at Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton), graduating with a B.A. Honours Degree and a Nancy Balfour Award. She was awarded a Scholarship to continue her studies and went on to complete a Masters Degree in Fine Art.

Elaine has also worked as an Equity Registered Stunt Co-ordinator and Performer in The Film and Television Industry for over 25 years, working on major films such as  007 Skyfall and the Harry Potter series (www.stuntproducer.com).  The adrenalin rush, movement, energy and drama is ever-present and feeds into her evocative and dynamic paintings. Influenced by JMW Turner, her work is driven by the desire to capture the sense of place and emotional responses that the sea and landscape can evoke, whilst leading the viewer on a visual journey.

Working as both a Professional Artist and a Stunt Co-ordinator, entails a constant switch between fantasy and reality. This is reflected in Elaine’s art works which are impressionistic in feel, but often with hints of contemporary romanticism and the sublime.
