"My original Jill Lena Ford painting hangs in my office, where I see it every day. It exudes uplifting energy, and brightens even the most difficult of work days. It radiates strength and light and love. My days are better for it. I fell in love with Jill's work, it was the very first time I felt moved and "connected" through art. And so, Jill, I thank you for this beautiful artwork, for sharing your immense talent and for painting a very personal journey for me."
"My custom made painting is placed where I see it often throughout the day. Each time I pass it, I feel the spirit through which it was created and I feel more centered. Its beauty is admired by all who see it. What a blessing Jill's talent has been to me as she transferred the energy of nature onto canvas. It speaks to my soul and brings peace to my home."
"I'm fortunate to own one of Jill's art works, having commissioned a beautiful piece which inspires and grounds me daily. With every brushstroke and placement of organic mixed media, the viewer is transported to far-off places - hypnotically drawn in to feelings of adventure, serenity, joy, wonderment and possibilities. Jill keeps in mind the importance of each individual she has been commissioned by and each emotion she intuitively actualizes through her art. If you are privileged to know Jill and own her art, I am certain that both experiences will evoke a lifetime of joy, personal growth, and satisfaction beyond all expectations. "
"My Jill Lena Ford painting is the focal point of my living room. It brings a sense of peace, tranquility and happiness every time I look at it. It creates a very warm environment in our home."
"Jill is a phenomenal woman and her work demonstrates energy and passion for each painting that she creates. She considers her clients with high levels of integrity, value and individuality that comes through in her paintings. I have four of her pieces in my home, each representing a different aspect of my personality. I love looking at my artwork and the uplifting feelings it brings me. My guests enjoy them too and I get so many compliments on it."
"My husband and I absolutely love our custom wedding art. What an amazing way to commemorate one of the best days of our lives. Our wedding day has come and gone, but we always will have this gorgeous reminder hanging in our home to symbolize the vows we made to each other that day."
"One of Jill Lena Ford's paintings hangs in a central place in our home. It has a warm and comforting feeling that makes me feel at home. It is earthy and natural, combining organic material with colorful paint in a way that enhances the natural beauty of the piece. I love Jill's work - it is bright, brilliant and brings a positive energy to the room."
"I am so happy with my beautiful custom artwork created by Jill. Unwrapping it was so exciting because I honestly had no idea what to expect. The colors in this piece are absolutely gorgeous and I love the unique way that the black sand and lava stones are incorporated into the piece. I hung it up immediately and I will truly cherish this piece forever."
"Our honeymoon to Hawaii was the perfect ending to our perfect wedding. The time we spent together was so peaceful and filled with love and happiness. Sometimes our days can get busy now, but our love continues to grow each day. I love that no matter how busy I am, every time I look at our honeymoon wedding painting, I am reminded of collecting shells for our painting together and brought back to those first days spent as a married couple in our new and blissful love."
"When I saw Jill's work I was instantly drawn in and reached out to her so that we could purchase a few pieces for my daughter's room. She deserves to be surrounded by beauty and I can't think of anything more beautiful and meaningful than these works. Using found earthly elements and a personal touch, Jill truly captures the beauty of the environment. When I contacted Jill to learn more she was traveling abroad but easy to communicate with. We spent time talking about the pieces that we were looking for, and she has since provided my daughter not only with beautiful artwork, but also with a role model to look up to as an accomplished and inspiring artist. What a wonderful gift on so many levels."

"I love the bright colors and sand and shells in my painting. Jill really has captured the feelings of being at the beach. The swirls are the warm winds and the colors are the many changing colors of the ocean as it washes up on the shore. My painting hangs in my bedroom. It is the first thing that I see when I wake up in the morning and it always makes me smile."
"Every time I admire the painting I had commissioned by Jill, I am taken on a trip. It's more than just the visual swirls of colors and curves of shapes. I see the sand and rock from the Sahara. I see hot desert days as a sirocco blows across the deserts of north Africa, and cold desert nights under countless stars. It's wonderful to be able to go on this journey time and time again, and to share it with all who visit my home."
"I commissioned Jill to create a painting using pink sands that I brought back from the beaches of Bermuda. She was such a pleasure to work with. We had a conversation about what I liked about her art and what colors that I respond to, and she created a piece that was more beautiful than I expected. It vibrates with positive and calming energy and reminds me of an unforgettable trip to this beautiful island."

"Jill's work as an artist is of very high standards. Excellent quality, very creative with bright colors and beautiful designs. I own one of her works which is hung in my living room to be enjoyed daily and shared with my guests. It brings a sense of peace and calm into my home."
"Jill created a custom painting for my husband and I when our daughter was just a tiny seed growing in me. The beautiful artwork brings color and harmony into our home, creating a corner of sunshine in rainy Copenhagen. But when I look at it, I see so much more than that. I see memories and friendships of the old city where we used to live, and where the pebbles and stones used to create our piece are collected from. And I see how the love in our little family has exploded to fill our lives since our daughter was born. This canvas contains more than simple paint and stones. Jill has filled it with warm feelings and memories."

"Jill Lena Ford is an active observer of foreign cultures and she channels her unique experiences into her art. Her warmth and likability open doors that are almost always closed to Western artists in foreign countries. Jill's art is deeply affected by the relationships she forms with the people she meets and the cultures she explores during her extensive international travels. These feelings of adventure and connection are expressed through her beautiful artwork, and I thoroughly enjoy having one of her custom pieces displayed in my home. "
