Born and raised in Texas, artist Wood Fancher Anthony is deeply inspired by the artistic richness of his mother’s homeland in Zacatecas, Mexico. Much of his work is filled with brilliant color and energy. Growing up, Wood was surrounded by his mother’s family and robust Mexican culture. His story and experiences allow him to create hauntingly beautiful works inspired by his experience but fired by his imagination. He believes his art must have the ability to tell a story or provide a place for the viewer to get lost within and create their own story. Wood Fancher Anthony, a self-taught artist, can execute anything from abstract to realism and enjoys using a variety of mediums, but works primarily in oil. Wood Fancher Anthony earned his BBA in Accounting at the University of Saint Thomas in 2002 and studied drawing at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas.
