Artist: Charity Wood
Charity Wood is a professional artist working in both traditional and digital media. Born and raised in Orange County, California she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from California State University of Fullerton.
Desiring to learn all aspects of digital applications for traditional media she worked one on one with professional artists at the leading Giclee Manufacturer in Southern California, helping them reproduce their works. This experience gave her the knowledge and understanding to create masterful reproductions. The end results are fine Giclees that capture beautiful detail and color with pin point accuracy.
After graduating from CSUF she worked in the film & animation industry in Burbank, CA creating concept art, digital matte paintings, illustrations and compositing film. She currently works as a professional artist in the ever growing Austin, TX video game industry. During her tenure as a video game artist she has been fortunate to count concept art, illustration and in-game art among her credits.
Throughout her industry career she has maintained a constant flow of traditional oil portraits and contemporary artwork for her many private clients and collectors. She has held several one-woman shows and numerous group exhibitions. Her distinctive “Pas de Lignes” style stands out, and her paintings are often found in Austin area shops and boutiques.
You may also know her as the Associate Editor of Subspace Communique and podcast co-host of “Life After Trek”. It is in this endeavor that her two passions first collided and ultimately merged, facilitating the creation of her Star Trek themed artwork.
