This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Elizabeth Wyn Wood was born in Orillia, Ontario in 1903.  She studied at the Ontario College of Art, Toronto, specializing in sculpture in her postgraduate year (1926).  She married her sculptor instructor Emanuel Hahn in 1926, and later studied one year at the Art Students League*, New York.

In 1930 she won the Willingdon Arts Award for sculpture.  She attended the first general assembly of UNESCO in Paris in 1946 supported by the Canadian Government. 

Her contact with the glaciated formations and landscapes of Georgian Bay and Muskoka during her childhood influenced her work and turned her sculpture to the Canadian landscape.

She was founding member of the Sculptors’ Society of Canada in 1928 and its president from 1933 to 1935.  She was author of the Brief of the Sculptors' Society of Canada to the Royal Commission on National Development in the Arts, Letters and Science submitted to the Massey Commission in 1949.  She worked as organizing secretary at the Canadian Arts Council (1944-1945), as chair of the international relations committee (1944-1948) and she was the vice-president from 1948 to 1949. From 1929 to 1958 she was teacher at Central Technical School, Toronto.

She also produced architectural sculpture and monuments, including the monument to King George IV at Niagara Falls, Ontario (1963), the Welland-Crowland War Memorial (1939); four carvings for the approach plaza to Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls, Ontario (1940-1942); two relief carvings for the Bank of Montreal Building in Toronto (1947-1948) and the Leacock Memorial in Orillia Public Library (1949).

Elizabeth Wyn Wood was one of the first modernists* in Canadian sculpture and is recognized for her production of sculpture-landscapes.
