Steven Ford employs a variety of printmaking techniques in his work. First he carves into rectangular linoleum plates and prints onto sheets of Japanese rice paper using a range of colored inks; then he layers and masks the printed sheets onto larger pieces of woven paper and passes the entire assemblage through a press, causing the papers to mergein a process known as "chine collé.” The final image, with its many overlapping and intersecting forms, is a mystery of figure and ground relationships.

Ford was born in 1964 inLafayette,Indiana, and received his BFA fromTylerSchoolof Art. He is known as both a printmaker and craft artist of fine jewelry.
