Robert E Wood grew up surrounded by artists and art. He was born in North Vancouver, B.C. in 1971, and currently resides in Calgary, Alberta. He has been painting full time since 1989, and 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 eight 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”.
Primarily known for his 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 always depict scenes he is dramatically inspired by.

Robert E Wood Biography Artist Statement:
Robert Wood’s love of light and colour, and passion for conveying his vision of the world, is a never-ending source of inspiration, and he has come to see his task as almost a spiritual one, using oil as a medium to imbue his canvasses with beauty and positive energy, which then resonates with the viewer. Although he believes awards in the arts are ridiculous and a matter of subjective opinion.
