About this Artist

Britt Ford is a 29-year-old multi discipline self-taught artist from Hoboken, NJ who recently moved to Tampa, FL.

Since 2015, Britt has been mastering her method of thermographic embossed artwork. Britt has created thousands of personalized unique treasures for clients. Britt has displayed her work at Britt Ford Pop Up, The Showcase

and New Works shows and continues to display her work in group shows today.

In 2016, Britt was commissioned to paint her first large scale mural for a private client in Hoboken’s historical

Neumann Leather Factory. Britt has gone on to paint vivid retro style murals for the city of Jersey City, located in McGinley Square and Journal Square.

Inspired by her surroundings, Britt wanted to incorporate what she loved, into larger spatial surroundings. Britt has obtained inspiration from fauna spotted on her travels and around town in Hoboken, NJ.  At times walking through Hoboken, Britt’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.

Britt’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, Britt is pioneering the next step through a new method. Britt’s art starts from her desire to show others what she has uncovered and finds truly beautiful and create an irreplaceable masterpiece.

Britt specializes in thermographic embossed paintings and large scale hand painted murals.
