After more than four decades of carving, Floyd Scholz is widely recognized as one of the preeminent bird sculptors in the world. He is in constant demand as a teacher, lecturer and art show judge, and his prestigious carving and painting seminars at the Vermont Raptor Academy typically sell out years in advance. Floyd's incredibly realistic sculptures are consistent top award winners at major shows throughout the U.S. and Canada, and are in high demand by collectors world-wide.
He has been featured in many major magazines and national television appearances, and is the author of five books on birds and carving, published by Stackpole Books. Aside from his prodigious skills as a sculptor, Floyd is an avid banjo and guitar picker and a frequent student of Homespun Tapes.
