Sheree Wood was born 1966 in Ames, Iowa. She lives and works in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Tucson, Arizona. A bold colorist, her work spans from watercolors to acrylic and oil. Wood's unique visual language is defined by imaginative abstracted observations of the natural world. Wood grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and has lived in Venezuela, Spain, and Portugal.
She holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Art degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she studied art, Romance languages and Spanish literature. Additionally she has studied art history at La Universidad Complutense in Madrid, Spain, and La Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal.
Wood has regularly exhibited since 2020. Her work was awarded the bronze medal in the Bold Abstracts 2023 International show by Camelback Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. Wood's solo show Out of the Box is on view at Vista 59 Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin until 8.31.23.
