Tragic News about Barbara A. Wood


I am sad to report that on March 21, 2014 Barbara was in a horrible car accident. Her neck was fractured in two places, her spinal cord bruised and she had a fractured sternum. Barbara had emergency spinal surgery on her neck and is currently in a residential rehabilitation facility in Georgia called Life Care Center of Lawrencevilile. The good news is the doctors are optimistic about a full or near full recovery. in the beginning Barbara had no movement in her painting hand (right-side) but she is starting to get this back. She has movement in her right leg she is unable to stand. Her left side is recovering at a promising rate and she is sketching with her left hand and doing some pretty amazing stuff!


Thursday July 31st Barbara will be GOING HOME after four months of recovery! Though she still has a long road ahead of her she is doing amazing. We are blessed to be able to have her brother and sister-in-law (RN) coming to live with Barbara and her husband to help with her daily needs and further recovery.

At this time Barbara is still unable to paint or sign any of the her existing prints as, for now, she has very little movement in her right hand. If you are interested in purchasing  any of Barbara’s prints there are currently three options available:

  1. 1.Wait awhile and have your ordered filled if and when Barbara regains use of her right hand.

  2. 2.Have Barbara sign with her left hand - the signature is very different but it is hers (several people have already opted for this choice.)

  3. 3.We can send you photos & prices of what we have left in stock of her already signed and framed images - sadly there is a chance these will be the last ones ever.

Thank you to everyone who has been purchasing her current stock of already signed framed prints and originals - all of this has gone towards her recovery!


Please visit her Facebook page at:


Due to Barbara’s signing/painting hand currently being out of commission ALL SALES of limited edition Prints, Serigraphs, and posters have been suspended - UNLESS previously signed. Any of her original oils that are still available can be purchased. If you are interested in any of Barbara’s original pieces please contact us directly at and we will be happy to send you photos and information. All proceeds from the sale of any Barbara A. Wood originals will go toward her rehabilitation fund.


The Barbara A. Wood Academy of Art will also remain closed EXCEPT for the Saturday Art classes taught by Christopher Simpson. These classes will continue until further notice.


We are asking for love and prayers for Barbara, and would love to receive any encouraging emails you would like for us to share with Barbara while she is recovering. These will surely boost her morale. Please email her daughter Juli at

Thank you for all your continued love and support over the years
