Biography Greg Woodard
The son of a cabinet-maker, Greg Woodard grew up around wood.
After high school, he worked as a switchman for the Santa Fe Railroad
and carved birds in his spare time. After 10 years, he was laid off
from the railroad and became a full time wood carver.
Working with tupelo gum, he fashions birds to appear as though they are
about to take flight. He is especially fond of wood from the
tupelo tree, which grows in bayous in the South. The strong dense
lumber is ideal for carving details like claws and toenails. He designs
the base first and then carves the bird to go with it. He works
primarily on commission.
