Born in San Francisco, Wood drew and painted early on. He has enjoyed the lifelong example and inspiration of distinguished artists: his parents Mireille and Philip Wood, grandfather Gottardo Piazzoni, great-uncle Maurice del Mué, cousin Russell Chatham, and other relatives and friends. He earned a B.A. from University of California Berkeley and an M.A. in English from San Francisco State University, teaching college composition and literature in New York and California for several years. In 1980, he decided on painting as his primary pursuit, and has since exhibited in numerous solo and group shows. His work hangs in many private collections. He welcomes visitors to his studio/gallery in Marin County, California for scheduled exhibits and otherwise by appointment.
