Born in the Mediterranean city of Nice, France Tisha Wood received her formal art education at the Beaux Arts School. She has studied for several years with renowned Colorado artist Lillian Kennedy. Her formative years were nurtured in traditional European gatherings known as Salons where her family and friends included artists, writers and educators. Raised traveling between the United States and France she has enjoyed a dual and bilingual culture basking in the saturation of Mediterranean colors and the beauty of North American landscape.
She paints with watercolors, oils and acrylics, displaying a strong palette knife stroke in acrylic as well as a delicate brush when painting plain air watercolors. As a classically trained artist Tisha's works reflect a passion for an impressionistic view. She completes a sensory experience in her paintings causing them to dance off the canvas. The colors in her landscapes and portraits enchant the eye. As a published artist in France she has received acclaim in the national French press, television and radio.
