June 2023 2-D Featured Artist A.J. Woods
After serving in the Air Force, he was trained in sign lettering by his grandfather which led to a 35-year career in commercial art as an owner, art director and artist. His professional specialties were sculptural signs and mural painting. “I have provided art for remarkable venues such as Camp Snoopy, Mall of America, Disney Florida and Rainforest Café restaurants around the country,” he explained “I have been fortunate to win a number of awards and to show and sell my art in many galleries and exhibits since 1981. I paint live for exhibitions when the opportunity arrives.”
He believes that art brings beauty, joy and conversation into people’s lives and feels privileged to participate in such enjoyable endeavors.
