Trisha Wood Energy Artist and Healer.

I am a self-taught artist and it became my full time career in 2014. I have always had a love of water colour work, especially after the ‘Cadburys Flake’ advert in the late 70′s where the lady was painting in a poppy field! I paint London cityscapes because of the childhood memories from visiting relatives in the Wandsworth area of London, travelling past Battersea Power Station and the surrounding area. Cityscapes aren't the only subjects I paint, as my energy work guides me with my heart designs, and my healing heart pendants.

I live in Kent, I am a qualified Social Worker, Reiki Practitioner and did my Degree (BSC Hons) in Social Science. My background is in community care, working in the field of palliative care and special needs. I have managed CAB, Council for Voluntary Services, Special Needs and Victim Support Programmes. In total over 30 years of caring and supporting people - changing lives - with love.

I studied Period Costume Design and Corsetry at the London College of Fashion and set up my own business in 2003 making Medieval style garments and corsets for themed weddings, which has also guided me to my path of becoming a Ceremony Celebrant.

My chosen Charities for 2018 are The Princes Trust and Breast Care Kent. I have raised over £2000 for both these charities already this year by having an art sale and donating an original art piece for one of their charity auctions.

I am very proud to be recognised for my work, receiving awards from; Kent Women in Business 2018, Kent Independent Traders and The Guardian. I was also proud to be shortlisted to appear in Sky Arts, Landscape Artist of the Year 2016.
