About C. Ford Riley

Ford Riley’s paintings, rich in detail and dramatic in color, reflect a deeply personal relationship with nature. One of the premiere southern habitat painters of his generation, he is also an ardent sportsman and conservationist who rallies on behalf of Florida wildlife and habitat threatened by excessive development.

Praised as the “Audubon of the 1980′s”, Ford’s paintings work because he paints what he knows. As a native of Jacksonville, Florida, he has spent much of his life studying birds and their environment, documenting the birds’ habits and unique habitats. This collection of field notes and sketches serves as an extensive source of ongoing material for his paintings. “I’ve been walking amongst these woods, these scenes, all my life. I grew up near the marsh, studying birds. I still love to watch them, to paint them. I know trees, and I know the landscape, and I believe that everything in art should look like its truest form. I understand the natural order of things here; I paint realistically because I understand the land.”
