Greg Woodard, from Prescott, AZ, is largely self-taught. He began carving decoys and went on to become a five time Best of Show winner at the Ward World Competition. He captured the World Competition with his interpretive sculpture of birds. Greg is a master falconer and has a deep passion for understanding the raptors he studies. He carries the love and knowledge from these powerful birds into his work. Another important feature of Woodard’s work is the railroad track theme, which symbolizes the cultural impact of the opening of the American West.
