Portraits play an important but not exclusive role in the work of Tom Wood. He has spent most of his life in West Yorkshire and works from a studio in a converted mill in Halifax. In discussing his approach to portraiture, Wood has said: "... my great hero has always been Holbein and the North European tradition of Van Eyck, Campin, Memlinc and Van der Veyden. That stiffness and Flemish formality along with a kind of Gothic abruptness of forms appeals far more than a Southern Renaissance liquidity."
