Jack Ford, who was a pupil at Hordle Walhampton from 1997-2001, is a traditionally trained artist. He studied initially at the Arts University Bournemouth and then moved to Florence, Italy, for four years studying and teaching with Charles H Cecil.
 
Having moved back to England, Jack currently works from his studio in Brixton and is available for Commissions.
  
Jack works mainly from life using the sight size tradition whereby the image and subject are placed side-by-side at a distance in order to perceive the whole. In this way one sees a unified image to scale and proportion. The method has been used by masters since the seventeenth century, including Reynolds, Lawrence, and Sargent, while its origins lie in the practice of Titian, Van Dyck and Velázquez.
