My name is Angie Wood and I live and work on a narrowboat on the Oxford Canal.
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 the London Diploma in Art and Design from 1980 - 1983 at Goldsmiths College.
I went on to pursue a career in graphic design and still work as a designer now on a freelance basis. However, I paint every day and collect beautiful objects to paint even though there's not much space left on the boat! I am attracted like a magpie to colour, pattern and reflective surfaces.
At the moment my paintings are small and I try to complete one a week. When I'm painting I'm in my 'happy place' and I hope it shows in my work!
