Family Beautiful’s Susan Short sat down with the vivacious and beautiful #AnnieWood in #WestHollywood to chat about her life, and her upcoming show, Pardon Me While I Blaze Some Trails-
“I started my art career a few years ago in full force as a response to witnessing my adored mother’s passing. I suddenly felt compelled to create copious amounts of vibrant colors and textures as if creating such beautiful noise could wake the dead. That hasn’t happened yet, but I’ll keep you posted.”
Annie had a recent pop up solo exhibit in Los Angeles featuring 72 pieces and she had her first international solo exhibit last summer in Venice, Italy titled, Beautiful Imperfections.
“For my current project I’m decoupaging life sized mannequins and other 3D objects in material relevant to the women I’m showcasing. I was inspired by the Hedy Lamarr documentary, Bombshell. The fact that Hedy Lamarr invented technology that we all use in our wi-fi and bluetooth is amazing yet that fact was barely mentioned before the documentary. It made me realize that I want to know more about the women I admire. These remarkable, creative women throughout history. So, I’m going to cover them in their story, through art.”
As a visual artist, Annie creates on a daily basis in her studio in Hollywood.
