My name is Belinda Jensen Wood and I'm an artist living in Springfield, MO. I'm a Springfield native. I graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1983 and attended Missouri State University as an art education major from 1989-1995. I've been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband Dwayne, who is a graphic artist. We have one daughter, Abby Wood, who is building her own art career.
I'm proud to say I come from a very creative family. My father, Joe Jensen, is a retired Springfield architect. My grandmother, Ila Jensen Latham, was a fiber artist from Ozark, MO and continued creating and teaching art into her 90's after moving to Florida.
I'm an active member in the Southwest Missouri Art & Craft Guild.
