Dan Wood

Dan Wood is an artist and printer living in Providence. After a brief stint studying history at McGill University in Montreal, he received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from RISD in 1994. He has continued his education in printing ever since, learning the crafts of offset lithographic and letterpress printing in commercial printshops from Washington, DC to Providence, RI.
