Southern Decoy Carvers Tom Boozer and Dr. Chris Ray
Photographer Gordon Munro
Painter Jessica Graham
Tom Boozer, Master Decoymaker, began at the age of 9 under the mentorship of Sumter?s legendary Master Woodworker, Olin Ballentine. Carving in the Stratford Style, typical of the 1850?s, his work is owned by major corporations, Ducks Unlimited, and prominent private collectors and was recently showcased in Garden & Gun.
Dr. Chris Ray, Director of the Clemson University Edisto Research & Education Center and Wildfowl World Champion Novice Duck Carver, he was introduced to his craft at an early age by his parents and is forging this tradition into each piece he carves.
Gordon Munro, known for his fashion photography, studio work and celebrity portraiture, Gordon has spent much of his career shooting for magazines such as Time, Interview, W, Vogue and Bazaar. He and his wife now live in Aiken.
Jessica Graham, landscape and abstract artist, studied art at UNC Greensboro. Having grown up in an artistic family, her love of art was passed down by her mother, and they are now carrying on that tradition together.
