Julie Ford

I am a local artist born and raised in Leigh-on-Sea. I believe that everyone is an artist and I have a passion for helping others to discover their own inner artist. A background in training and coaching enables me to provide a simple, structured approach to working with, and getting the best out of mediums such as soft pastels and oils.

I am a graduate of the Milan Art Mastery programme and an Associate Artist for Unison Colour, the premier British, soft pastel brand. I have trained extensively with an eclectic range of professional artists which has given me a comprehensive list of tips and techniques to share.

My own work has been exhibited at Southend Beecroft Gallery and the Munnings Museum Gallery in Dedham. My workshops encourage and support you to find the joy in playing with colour and exploring your own artistic creativity.
