Biography from ArtSanDiego:
Gorman Woody was born in Kansas in 1907. At an early age he moved with his family to Colorado, then on to Santa Cruz, California where he remained for most of the remainder of his life.

He graduated from Santa Cruz High School in 1925. Afterwards he was a performer at the famous “Plunge” on the Santa Cruz boardwalk. For a period of time he worked for Otar the Lampmaker in Santa Cruz doing drawings, designs, and metal work. He apparently studied painting at an early age, as some of his works date to the early 1930’s.

From the 1920’s through the 1940’s he concentrated on his photographic work. He did a series of aerial shots of Santa Cruz, and the surrounding area. He also worked as a portrait photographer.

In addition to his painting and photographic skills, Woody was a master carpenter. He often did hand carvings of figures and nautical themes. During the early 1950’s he did extensive carpentry work on a home being built for filmmaker, Alfred Hitchcock. He was also a sculptor and jewelry maker. Woody had his hand in many arts and crafts areas.

After his retirement, in the 1970’s, he took a painting course from the Famous Artists School in New England. He became a very prolific painter of Monterey Peninsula scenes during this period. He was a member of the Santa Cruz Art League, and exhibited widely on the Monterey Peninsula in his latter years. His works were exhibited in local galleries and exhibitions in the Santa Cruz area.
