Jill Lena Ford

Jill Lena Ford is a world-traveling artist best known for her self-developed style of abstract art called “Organic Mixed Media.” Collecting natural elements of the Earth—from volcanic sands of the Hawaiian islands to rose petals from a bush in Morocco—Ford incorporates these natural materials onto her canvases, which she also paints with acrylics and oils, turning a two-dimensional painting into a three-dimensional homage to the place from which the materials originated. The artist is a storyteller who uses her canvas to convey emotions about the cultures and landscapes she has experienced as a world traveler. Her newest venture, Tifrija Designs, offers customized luxury paintngs to her clients as a way to provide others with meaningful artwork that not only reflects the beauty of the natural world, but also provides a deeply emotive experience to be treasured time and time again.

Recently returning to her hometown roots of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to make her home, she previously lived on Hawaii’s Kauai island and has traveled to the far ends of the Earth on her quest to find inspiration from various countries, and include their exotic landscapes into her artworks.

The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native earned a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2001 and a Masters degree in Art Education in 2006 from Northern Arizona University. Her works have been shown in galleries and exhibitions held throughout the country, and her murals have been featured internationally in places such as India, Morocco, Thailand, and Belize. Jill spends her time in the countryside near her hometown of Pittsburgh, where she continues to create her artwork and embrace the beauty of nature. If you can’t find her there, she is probably out trekking the globe gathering new inspiration.
