Meet Don Woodard

Creating Fine Art in Wood


Don Woodard is an internationally recognized artist that has the unique ability to carve by hand, very detailed, High & Low Relief, Mixed Media  images, in select woods. He also has the painting skills to highlight or detail the carvings into works of fine art.

 “The challenge of creating an image of realism from a piece of wood is my passion.”  ~Don Woodard

About the Art: His subject matter is wide ranging, including wildlife, western images, and landscapes, which are all reflective of Don’s interests. Many of his western scenes represent events and activities that he has experienced leading pack-horse trips into the Rocky Mountain Wilderness for over 40 years. He is also very happy to create a commissioned work of art, to tell YOUR STORY!

“Award winning artist and sculptor Don Woodard combines carving and color to produce visual and functional art with western and wildlife themes.

Like Olaf, Don’s art is influenced by events and situations experienced first-hand.”

    ~ Olaf Wieghorst Museum & Western Heritage Center

All of Don’s work is sculpted by hand and when it is finished naturally he calls it a Relief Wood Sculpture, but when he paints the work of art, he refers to it as a 3-Dimensional Painting.
