DARYL LYNNE WOOD
MIXED MEDIA MOSAIC ARTIST
Hi! I’m Daryl Lynne Wood. A mixed media mosaic artist on Vancouver Island, BC, canada. Just as some people find adventure climbing mountains, I find adventure experimenting with materials in my studio.
I am intrigued by combining diverse materials or using a material in a new way. I have been honoured to exhibit in various juried, Canadian, international mosaic art shows and to participate in mosaic conferences in exciting places around the world.
I have a contemporary sensibility towards mosaic art and composition, but I have studied traditional andamento and techniques and try to use this mosaic language to express new ideas.
My studio is a random collection of diverse materials, but, when an idea and composition come to mind, I find a harmony that brings many elements together.
Everywhere I go, from trail hiking and beach walking, to rock and gem shops, I collect a variety of fragments to use for mosaics as well as enjoying the use of traditional Italian smalti.
