About me

Zoe Ford is originally from Berkshire, beginning her arts education at Farnham UCA and continuing onto Norwich University College of the Arts, where she graduated in 2012 with a BA Honours degree in Fine Art. On completion of her studies she moved to London in search of her career in the arts. This meant completing a series of internships with galleries, working at art fairs and festivals such as The Other Art Fair and London Festival of Photography and working alongside three established artist’s as an Artist’s Assistant. All of these positions have greatly enhanced and expanded her knowledge of both contemporary and 20th Century art. Her practice encompasses a range of concepts within various disciplines including painting, drawing and sculpture, often blurring the boundaries between practices. She has an appreciation for an eclectic range of art and passionate about all forms of artistic expression. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with friends and family, visiting a variety of exhibitions, watching films and attending live music and comedy events.
