Dylan Goodson Dylan
Goodson is a self-taught woodcarver, born and raised in the woods of
Coosa County, Alabama. He has always enjoyed making things, and since
he had an ample supply of sticks and wood, he made lots of wooden boats
and other toys as a child. In 2000, at age 14, he checked out every
book in the public library about woodcarving. Since then he hascarved
a wide range of subjects, from human figures to miniature animals, but
he's found the most success with his pictorial relief scenes. In the
fall of 2007, he taught his first class on relief carvings. Since then
he's taught several classes around Alabama. He has also exhibited his
work around the eastern United States, garnering top awards at some of
the major woodcarving shows.
