BASTROP, TEXAS 78602
JUROR: Enid Wood
Denver native Enid Wood fell in love with pastels as a toddler, when she first saw pastel portrait artists at the Plaza in Santa Fe, NM.
Enid earned a BA in art from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, where she studied portrait, figure, and still life painting in pastel and oils with Don Doxey.
Later, she studied art history in an interdisciplinary masters degree program at Yale.
Painting is her second career, after 30 years as a violin teacher in the UK and USA. She now paints full time, and has studied pastel landscape painting with Albert Handell. Her colorful paintings appear in numerous national and international exhibitions, and have been awarded a multitude of prizes.
She enjoys brisk sales in galleries throughout the west. Enid has signature status in the Pastel Society of America and the Pastel Society of New Mexico.
She teaches pastel classes and workshops in Texas and New Mexico, and paints both in her Bastrop studio and outdoors. Her paintings usually begin with a color or a pair of colors, and finish when she feels she has captured in pastel the joy of sunlight and shadow falling on water, earth, and living things.
You can see more of Enid's work at her website.
