About Parker

 

Parker Ford grew up west of Billings where pine bluffs and the eastern prairie shape the landscape.  He studied art in Bozeman at MSU, where he eventually received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Marketing.  Parker spent a semester in Morocco, where he studied Islamic Art and Architecture. In addition to his studies in Morocco, Parker traveled Europe where he concentrated on studying the classic painters and their techniques.

Over the years, Parker has used several different mediums to express his western contemporary concepts.  He has worked in slate carvings, metal sculptures, and acrylic paintings. Parker says this allows him to be creative in many different forms and gives him more ways of expressing himself and his ideas.  “All of these mediums have their limitations, and an idea in one medium will often lead to another idea in another medium.”

He says he wants his art to be an avenue that allows the viewer to use their imagination.  Horses and cattle dominate many of his pieces, which Parker attributes to his childhood.  For him, these animals represent Montana and allow him to show his love for the west with a creative twist.
