Hello! My name is Martha Ford and I'm an illustrator based in Bristol, UK. 

I combine my favourite traditional media (watercolours, gouache and coloured pencils) with digital painting techniques using both Procreate and Adobe Photoshop.

I am heavily influenced by fantasy and science fiction literature. I love how these stories explore humanity through nature, science and magic. 

Initially I worked in the animation industry before transitioning into freelance illustration. Over the past 5 years, I have worked as a qualified art and photography educator, whilst completing a Masters degree.


As of Summer 2019, I reduced my teaching hours, to allow me to fully focus on my illustration practice and commissions.
