Ann Wood grew up on a family farm in central Iowa and uses the visual elements of abundance, nature and animals in her images. She is a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
During the past five years, Ann Wood has created dense surfaces made of dyed, cracked egg shells and seed beads hand set with surgical tweezers. It is her intension to make beautiful, personal images which describe a powerful spirit in a mysterious manner. By jumping through time and choosing figures of differing ages, she hopes to make a physiological imprint of her life's story.
Ann Wood also collaborates with Dean Lucker on mechanical pictures and dexterity games. You can view the work on their website at www.woodlucker.com
