Port Community Arts Centre

John Ford
Treasurer, P.C.A.C.

The artist ...

John always drew and painted, as a child, and his talent saw him win many prizes at school. However, his involvement in art did not really blossom until he left the Royal Air Force and came to Australia, in 1975.  From that time he began to practise his art much more and began to achieve success with his exhibitions and is now a well-known and respected artist.

Watercolour is John’s chosen medium but he also occasionally paints in acrylics.  John is an acknowledged marine artist of note but he does not confine his subject matter to that area.

The board member ...

John joined PCAC in 2002 and, in the next year, together with Kaz Pedersen, Marianne Wienert and others, set about re-vitalising the Centre.  In that year he also became chairman and has successfully guided the Centre to its present, very health state.
