Woody Jackson lives outside of Middlebury, VT with his wife Ingrid and five boys, Bjorn, Leif, Macon, Ebenezer and Silas. He has no cows of his own, but prefers to make his neighbors cows famous. He finds Vermont is home for the soul as well as the body. He graduated from Middlebury College in 1970 and received a master's degree in fine arts from Yale School of Art in 1980.

Famous for Holstein cow paintings, he is inspired by the barns and hills of Vermont dairylands. Not all of his paintings involve cows, as evidenced by his intensely hued watercolors of churches and landscapes of New Mexico. Woody has also embarked on a new career as a writer, having authored the children's book Counting Cows; and its sequel, "The Cow's Alfalphabet". Woody Jackson's company, Holy Cow, Inc., markets his cow goods worldwide. Artist's Statement: "All my artwork has always been inspired by the land, from apple orchards, vegetables gardens, New Mexico deserts, dairy farms, and even the New York City waterfront. The land in turn is changed and inspired by time and the seasons. The light is different through the day and month to month.
