About the author

Contributor Notes

Woody Jackson lives in Addison County, Vermont-the land of milk and honey. He discovered art and cows at Middlebury College, from which he graduated in 1970. He created ties among the dairymen and -women there and has been creating bovine artwork ever since. He also received an MFA from the Yale School of Art and lived in New York City. Vermont is where his heart and art coexist. His cows grace the sides of Ben & Jerry's ice cream trucks as well as many art collections.
