Stephen Ford is a talented up and coming artist that has had a passion for art since he was a child. There are not very many places in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to go and view art from local artists. Luckily, the Valley View Mall is one of them. There are a plethora of galleries inside the mall that display artwork from local artists, including Stephen Ford, unlike most galleries that display famous artwork from around the world. This gives local artists the opportunity to share their art and their passion with people. Stephen’s main goal is to always be able to share his artwork with the rest of the world and then open his own gallery one day. He wants to help local artist like himself get their artwork out there like he once wanted. Stephen’s art is located at Bearkat Studio within Valley View Mall and he will continue to paint with his full emotion, heart, and soul.
