Gemma Wood is an Artist from Yorkshire, England, working in the medium of Photography and specializes in Conceptual Portraits and Self Portraits.
Taking inspiration from classic storytellers such as Brothers Grimm, old English proverbs & folk lore as well as old paintings from the Romanticism movement, her work has brooding whimsical tones throughout.
Using symbolism, Human form, tones & textures, all of her images have their own meaning and their own visual story to tell.
It is through her Self Portraits that Gemma expresses her thoughts, feelings and dreams, which, in turn makes her work fearlessly personal and self-reflecting.
Gemma strives to recreate the ethereal images and themes she holds in her mind to make her own world come to life in a unique, mysterious & painterly style.
