Oil painting of dog on beach on canvas 18" x 18"

A love of painting

My name is Angie Wood and I live on
a narrowboat called 'Perros' in Oxfordshire, U.K. with my partner Dale and a 13 year old shih tzu called Molly.

I've loved drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, so it was a natural choice for me to study art at college. I completed a diploma in graphic design at the beginning of the eighties (that ages me!), and continued in that vein throughout my career, becoming a paste up artist, then a typesetter, then an artworker and designer. However, all the while I've continued to draw and paint.

Another of my great loves is animals, and sketching or painting them is a joy for me. I still work as a graphic designer part time, but also paint every day in a tiny studio in my boat, which Dale has constructed so I can fit in as much of my art paraphernalia as possible!
