    This is my second purchase from Greg and, again, he/his craft have surpassed my expectations. If you are in the market for a custom piece, do not hesitate to commission Greg — you will not be disappointed! He is able to capture the soul of your beloved like no other...and he is super accessible and efficient, important qualities not all artists can claim. Very happy to have discovered Greg on Etsy years ago and hope to work with him again in the future.

    I searched Etsy for a long time to find an artist that could do a custom portrait of our Frenchie, Scott. Greg's shop, WoundedWood, stood out right away. After corresponding with Greg about my ideas and Scott's personality, I knew he was the perfect artist for the job. I was right. And Greg's talent is just the beginning of why we are so delighted. Greg is a great listener and communicator, a genuinely good person, a guy who totally gets the connection between people and dogs, and most importantly a true craftsperson who can translate a living, breathing dog personality into a permanent tribute piece. We are so honored and touched to have our portrait from Greg. Of the hundred+ Etsy transactions I've had over the years, I'd easily say this was the best one ever. We love WoundedWood!

About

Finding beauty in the discarded.

I began making art and craft from found and reclaimed materials in the 80's in Austin, Texas. I was earning my living at that time remodeling old homes and I would routinely salvage some of the materials that I was removing from homes that were built in the 40's. I began to use this scrap to create sculptural art pieces, mostly for fun.

In the 2000's I started making more objects- birdhouses, furniture and other furnishings for our home. When I found out about Etsy I was motivated to create more pieces and try to sell them. I did my first wood-burning, a portrait of a friend's dog, and that has turned into a popular Etsy seller for me.

I am a passionate proponent of living small and conserving resources. There is a wealth of beautiful materials that are discarded every day. Using reclaimed materials is a practice that all of us will soon become more familiar with.

Wounded Wood creates unique and one-of-a-kind art, crafts and furnishings. We use reclaimed materials for most all of our creations and we search for materials that will make a simple piece extraordinary and give it "soul". There is no mass production and no two pieces are ever alike.
