Allyce Wood is a visual artist and arts educator with over ten years of experience. She creates her artwork using a variety of digital and handmade techniques, specializing in jacquard tapestry. Her work often begins with what materials mean to her, creating interpretations of our current messaging culture. Ideas of softness and flexibility in order to make heavy, cold subjects accessible.
She has exhibited her work in solo and group shows locally and internationally in the Pacific Northwest, Glasgow, Milan, Caracas, and Oslo. Her work has been featured in New American Painting, The Stranger, and The Makers Podcast (USA) and reviewed by Kunstkritikk, Subject, and Dagsvisen (Norway). She earned her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts in 2010, and her MFA from Kunsthogskolen i Oslo in 2018.
Allyce believes that art is the way we talk about where we are, who we are, and what matters to us - by involving young artists in these discussions, they can contribute to our shared visual culture. It has always been her mission to aid her community, share positivity with others, and build creative educational opportunities whenever possible.
