Letha grew up in the Midwest in a home filled with art and with storytelling. She learned early on that putting the two together was key to her creative joy.
At the outset of her illustration career, Letha focused upon food as her subjects, putting her love of cooking and of art together to produce a portfolio of award-winning food illustrations. Recently, she began crafting a pharmaceutical illustration portfolio which complements her existing work.
Both portfolios contain work that is suitable for the Advertising, Editorial, Branding, and Packaging markets. Her illustrations begin with ideation and concept sketches, then she styles and photographs the reference images which inspire her digital, painterly-yet-realistic work.
Professor Letha Carrico Wood teaches the next generation of talented young artists and designers at the Savannah, GA campus of Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
Savoring life in coastal Georgia, Letha divides her time between studio, classroom, kitchen, and gardens.
