Enid Wood paints landscapes in pastel.  Raised in Colorado, with summers spent in Santa Fe, Enid loves the colors, shapes, and textures of mountains, water, rocks, clouds, trees, shrubs, and meadows.

Her paintings begin with one color or an unexpected pair of colors. The remainder of the painting takes shape from that beginning.  For Enid, the vitality of each stroke evokes a mood, makes textures, and creates harmonies. She enjoys finding a balance between the intuitive and analytical paths to art.

Enid studied still life and portrait painting at Westminster College in Salt Lake City with Don Doxey. She has taught violin in San Francisco, New Haven, London, Pittsburgh, and Bastrop, TX.

Inspired by art museums and landscapes seen during her travels, she began painting landscapes in 2004, both in her studio and outdoors.  She has studied pastel landscape painting with Albert Handell, Anita Louise West, Duane Wakeham, Fred Somers, Rita Kirkman, and Richard McKinley.

Her vivid pastel paintings explore patterns and textures created by the movement of light, wind, and water. Enid’s paintings have won local, national, and international acclaim. Her writing and painting have appeared in The Pastel Journal.  She is represented by Artworks gallery in Austin, TX.
