'Espaliered Woman II Leaning' for La Providence'Espaliered Woman II Leaning' for La Providence

Laura Ford studied at Bath Academy of Art (1978–82) and at Chelsea School of Art (1982–83). Some of her best known sculptures are based on figures of children, constructed mainly in fabric, anonymous and faceless characters involved in a variety of activities. The figures have an uncanny feel about them as if they are somehow plunged into a world of nightmare or adult struggle. , a piece she made as a result of a residency at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop consisted of a group of child-size knights in armour apparently fallen in battle and was shown at Roche Court in 2006.

She has had solo shows at the Nicola Jacobs Gallery, Benjamin Rhodes Gallery, the Castle Museum, Nottingham, the Jose Friere Project Space, New York, in 1994, and Spacex, Exeter, in 1996. Her work has also been included in many group exhibitions in Britain and her work has also been shown in Japan. She lives and works in London.
