Robert E Wood
Robert E. Wood grew up surrounded by artists and art. Born in North Vancouver, B.C. in 1971, he currently resides in Calgary, Alberta. Painting full time since 1989, his career follows over 70 years of professional art in his family. His grandfather was Robert E. Wood and his father was Karl E. Wood - with whom he spent 8 months training. This was followed by study with several other notable artists, including Harold Lyon, and years of personal artistic exploration and development. Robert has been surrounded by art his entire life and took to it from his earliest years, when his grandfather called him “the little painter”. Known primarily for Canadian landscapes, Robert is adept at portraying a wide variety of subject matter: the mountains, canyons, lakes, rivers and forests of the Rocky Mountains; sunsets, old cabins and barns of the West, the Okanagan, Europe, Mexico and other tropical settings and a variety of still-life, floral and garden scenes. His paintings sing with colour and inevitably depict
scenes by which he is dramatically inspired.
