Kyle Wood was born in Dallas, Texas, on February 19, 1972. His interest in drawing & painting came at an early age. Initially, he doodled with paint-by-number series, but his Great Aunt, Mildred Stapleton, saw that he had great potential and encouraged him to take art instruction from a professional artist. Kyle's first instruction came from Calonnie Gragg, who taught children's and adult art classes at Nicholís Art & Frame in Mesquite, Texas, and later at Barton on Boystun Gallery in Rockwall, Texas. In the beginning, he took children's classes learning a variety of mediums, but decided that his passion was oil painting, so he enrolled in the adult oil painting classes. Under Calonnie's guidance, Kyle learned the basics of color mixing, value, composition, along with a variety of brush & knife techniques. In addition, he has taken several art & architectural classes at Eastfield College and The University of Texas at Arlington, where he holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art (December 1999). In 2003, Kyle had the privilege to study with June Lee, learning a romantic style and palette knife technique of oil painting similar to Dalhart Windberg. More recently, he has taken on a new challenge by participating in yearly plein-air painting events with NETFAA and Ellis County Art Association.

As an artist, Kyleís passion is painting landscapes and historical buildings. He credits much of his painting ability to his keen observation of perspective. Taking photographs while on vacation and at other leisure moments is the primary resource for his oil paintings. Well known Texas Artists, like W.A. Slaughter, Larry Dyke, Dalhart Windberg, and many others have been a major influence, which is highly evident in his bluebonnet landscapes of the Texas Hill Country. Kyle has participated in a number of juried exhibitions locally and nationally, including Texas & Neighbors, Paint America Paint the Parks mini 50, Paint America Top 100 and The State Fair of Texas. He is also a member of Artists of Texas, Contemporary Fine Artists International and Landscape Artist International. In addition, he has served as membership chairman and Vice President for Northeast Texas Fine Art Alliance, which meets monthly in Terrell, Texas, to promote fine art. His work is currently being represented by The Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas, and many of his paintings are finding their way into corporate & private collections throughout America. Kyle and his wife, Lori, currently reside in Terrell, Texas.
