"My artwork explores the underlying personal narratives that share a universality of themes: vulnerability, loss, resilience, and hope."

In her work, which is predominately lens-based as well as installation, Wood seeks to express the experience of vulnerability with the hope of building a shared awareness of and empathy for others.
