My art practice is inspired by land and sea explorations from the Arctic Circle to the Great Barrier Reef. Blue water sailing and hiking across various landscapes has provided the palette and motivation to expand and abstract these vistas. As an oil, acrylic and casein painter, I work with natural ground pigments on wood, canvas and washi paper. My work focuses on presenting colors, textures and unusual perspectives in abstract land & seascapes.
Trained in oil, ink, and encaustic, Wo works primarily on wood, canvas, and paper. As the daughter of NASA Scientists, her education explored not only art but questions in Physics and Philosophy. Wo holds a BA in Philosophy (summa cum laude) JCU, with concentrated atelier art study in Scandinavia and the US including the Art Students League of NY, Cleveland Institute of Art, and SF State University. Her inspiration is drawn from sailing and land travel in natural environments across six continents. Wo's work has been exhibited in the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, New York Hall of Science Museum, Hosby Konsthall Print Museum, and the Museum of Encaustic Art as well as numerous galleries in the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia. Her work is available through the Alessandro Berni Gallery (NY, Italy), Atlantic Gallery, (NY), SF Women’s Art Gallery (SF), ICB Art Studio 126 (Sausalito, CA). Wo is a third generation female painter living in Northern California.

Nestled close to the San Francisco Bay, in Sausalito, is a landmark historic building steeped in the area’s ship building roots, and rekindled by the creative juices of a vibrant community of artists. Known as “ICB Building” it sits just a couple of hundred yards from the Bay, in an area of Sausalito, California that is called Marinship because of the kind of ship building activity that took place here during World War II.
Because of its light filled industrial style spaces, the ICB has become known as the “Tribeca of Sausalito.”
