Terry Wood was born in Tottenham, North London, and grew up in Potters Bar. He has now lived in Stotfold, Hertfordshire.
Terry studied at St. Albans School of Art, and completed a BA-Hons degree in 2D Design.
His background is in Commercial Art, but his passion was in traditional painting. Finding himself on his own after tragically losing his wife, he knew he had to do something else with his life and applied for a class in fine art, graduating with a degree in the subject.
Terry gains inspiration from many sources. Having travelled extensively, his sketchbook is usually a digital camera, which he finds useful especially when time is short.
