Kathy Ford

Worthington MA, 413-238-0219

Kathy Ford grew up in Rochester, New York, graduated from Hobart & William Smith Colleges in 1980 with a major in design theory, and received a Master of Architecture from Harvard University in 1985. She practiced architecture in New York and Massachusetts for thirty-five years, working with local non-profit community organizations to design affordable housing in existing and historic buildings.

Her work as a quiltmaker began shortly after becoming a mother in 1991. She now balances creative life between quiltmaking/fiber art and writing at her home studio in Worthington MA.

Explorations in holistic health and somatics have included mothering a child with special needs, training in energy medicine, yoga certification, and practicing Continuum Movement. Her book, Adding Wood To The Fire, A Quiltmaker’s Way was published in December 2017. Part tale of artist finding voice, of quiltmaking process, and of awakening, the heart of the book is a story of creative spirit.

Kathy’s quilts have been exhibited in juried shows and sold to private collections. Her body of work can be seen at kathyford.net.
