About the Artist
Heather Wood is a Washington local, Hands On Children's Museum employee (for seven years!), and Evergreen college alum. Her childhood love of art grew from graphite to mixed media throughout high school. In college, she focused her skills on acrylics and other paint media. Heather’s familiarity and affection for the Washington peninsula, forests and beaches help drive her imagination and creation of works, allowing her to dream up interesting landscape pieces that mold well with her passion for dinosaurs. Her devotion to dinosaurs started at an early age, but was more recently refined with the creation of her first dinosaur piece “The Dangers of Selfies”. She also brings her enthusiasm for art, science, and the natural world to her position in the education dept. at the Museum.
