About the Artist

Lydia Wood is an emerging artist in St. Louis, Missouri. Her abstract and figurative work are explorations of emotion inspired by chaos, joy, the mundane, and the heartache of life. Lydia considers art as a way to challenge stigma and spur conversation. Through her paintings, Lydia Wood wrestles with topics ranging from striving for significance to grief and contentment.

Her current work explores the challenges of balancing life as an artist, a mother, and a pediatric ER nurse. In her latest series, Seasons of Life, Lydia paints abstract “portraits” of an individual’s life. She illustrates how moments march into seasons and events, like staccato notes, announce a new era. This approach reveals how both setbacks and successes come together in a vibrant narrative.

Lydia has exhibited at the St. Louis Artists Guild and Erica Popp Studios + Gallery. While Lydia has taken select coursework in Fine Arts, she is largely self taught. Lydia has done various figurative and abstract commissions, and she particularly enjoys painting an individual’s or company’s story and vision.
