FORD, Jane

1944 - ?

As Jane N. D. Waring, she was born at Windsor, Berkshire in 1944, daughter of Edward Scott Waring (1907-1991) and his wife Virginia Fontaine née Fox (1912-2000), who married at Paddington, London in 1936 and in 1939 were living at 4 Stanmore Hill, Harrow, Middlesex. Jane married at Chelsea, London in 1965, Gerard C. Ford and paints as Jane Ford. Jane studied printing and graphic design and is a painter, mosaic artist and a poet, with interests in abstract art and in the mixing of mediums. In the summer of 1966, she rented a barn in a field near to where her parents lived in Cornwall and constructed a still life with a bedstead, a piano, and a fairground horse and in counterpoint to the reality being painstakingly distilled on the canvas, she cut away one side of the actual piano, and added touches of colour to things she was painting, the resulting work brings to some junk in an English barn the formalised stillness and light of a Piero della Francesca (c.1415-1492). Jane exhibited from Rookery Farmhouse, Sudbury, Suffolk at 'Vision of Sudbury' show at St Peter's church, Sudbury in 2007, a mosaic 'Wanted-The Western By-pass', in 2009 a palette knife/oil on canvas 'Sudbury Meadows' and in 2013 a collage acrylic 'St Peter's in a Dream'.
