WELCOME, enjoy the ride!
Nicola Wood is one of the world's premier artists who use the car as a subject matter. Anything but a "car painter," the classically trained Wood infuses surreal elements of sheer beauty and pop culture icons and images into her work. Her acclaimed paintings, whether revealing a sexy '50s Cadillac, James Dean's famed Porsche Spyder or a sublime Delahaye marooned in the desert, are true masterpieces.
A member of the Automotive Fine Arts Society (AFAS), Wood is a five-time recipient of the Athena Award of Excellence. Among other accolades, Wood received the industry's prestigious Peter Helck Award twice, once for the 1993 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance poster painting of a 1931 V16 Cadillac and a second time for the 2009 painting Ferrari 512.
