CK Wood

I was born in Leeds, West Yorkshire where I still live and work.  I had a love of drawing and painting from an early age, and thanks to the encouragement of my parents I was given the tools to experiment with a variety of mediums and given the inspiration from our regular visits to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. My love of nature and art continued after leaving school, and I knew that was where I would like my future to lead.  So at the age of 20 I trained as a Surface Pattern Designer and Colourist at Leeds College of Art and Design gaining a Btec ND.  I later spent some time specializing in florals at Stockport College of Art and Design.  After finishing my studies I decided I would put my artistic career on hold and raise a family.  Finding the time again to paint in earnest, I found myself in the position to paint professionally in 2006.  And since then my work has continued to grow in popularity, and I am delighted and honored to find my work selling to collectors both home and abroad.
