Artist Actor Writer Poet
Here's a bit about me.
(In third person 'cause it's less braggy and way more impressive.)
Internationally exhibited, neurodiverse actor, writer, artist, Annie Wood, was born and raised in Hollywood, California. Annie was a dating game show host and co-producer on the nationally syndicated show, BZZZ! Making her the third solo female dating game show host in the history of television! She was a guest on The Tonight Show and has appeared on several TV shows, films, and her voice can be heard in video games, commercials and even toys.
As an artist, Annie creates art with whatever is in reach. She is moved by memories, real and imagined, humor, pathos and magical realisim. Annie agrees with the writer, Chuck Palahniuk, who famously said, Everything you do shows your hand. Everything’s a self portrait. Everything’s a diary.
She is attracted to layers, textures and the concept and practice of decadence alongside raw messiness she calls - The colorful dichotomy of art and life. She likes creating images that are steeped in nostalgic joy and vibrant longing.
Annie’s work has appeared in many group exhibits across the country. Her last solo exhibit showcasing trailblazing women, Pardon Me While I Blaze Some Trails was at the Mainstay Gallery in Santa Monica. Her solo exhibit before that, Beautiful Imperfections, took place in beautiful Venice, Italy and the one before that Annie Wood in Hollywood, in her hometown of Hollywood, California.
Annie finds anything & everything in life to be inspiring,

The Big Plan (back to first person)
I'm keeping my store nice and tidy to soothe my-prone-to-overwhelm-brain. I'll have 15 artworks of various sizes and mediums in my shop at all times and swap out the art after a bit to keep things fresh. But if you see something in the gallery or elsewhere on the interwebs that isn't in my store, just reach out and I'll let you know if it's still available.
Feel free to also check my Etsy shop.
