Josephine was born and lives in London, UK. She has exhibited widely in the UK and Internationally, in and outside of mainstream galleries, including Kunstraum Riehen, Basel, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Turps Gallery, London, Centre for Contemporary Art Glasgow, The Horse Hospital, London, Vitrine Gallery, London, Global Art Container Gallery, Tallinn and Mishenmarche Gallery, Berlin. In 2022 she has been commissioned to make a painting for a public billboard as part of the 16.9 Billboard project for Kingsgate Gallery. 

Wood's figurative-abstract paintings are a comical, idiosyncratic take on social and economical realities. There is a distinct socio-political context to her work, particularly in regards to social decline in modern Britain. Wood’s awkward figures/bodies manifest her preoccupations relating to class, consumerism, greed, desire and failure.
