STEPHANIE WOOD

Stephanie Wood

Stephanie grew up in the dark and muted greens of British Columbia, Canada. Her vibrant Mediterranean canvases surprised even herself. She was once asked by her painting professor, at the University of Virginia, B.C., where she received her B.F.A., to please turn her painting to the wall when not working on it, as the brightness of its colours hurt his eyes.

Stephanie moved to Cyprus 20 years ago and her colours were instantly at home. Daily life in Droushia Village, Paphos involves light-filled visual journeys to delight the eye. Rolling fields of grapevines shimmer under high skies of intense blue. Puffy white clouds nestle against the graphic edges of the high hills. And the turquoise opaqueness of the Mediterranean waits below.

The artist's Plum Island Studio is in the centre of Droushia village and can be visited. Drop by or call her at 26332065.
