Jordan Wood is a painter and installation artist from Richfield, Wisconsin. She lived in the Milwaukee area for eighteen years and then started her college career at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. Transferring her sophomore year, Jordan graduated with a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. After graduating, Jordan missed the changing seasons, forests, and cooler weather of the North and moved to Portland, Maine to pursue a graduate degree from the Maine College of Art and Design. Wood is heavily influenced by film, which led her to combine the love for the genre with the New England atmosphere through her paintings. After graduating from the Maine College of Art in 2022, Jordan plans on staying in the New England area to continue painting her life as she sees it here.
