Wilson of Wings Over Water Studios grew up in
Spruce Pine, Alabama where he and his family
raised many types of ducks, geese, and swans
from all over the world. Blake has studied their
behaviors and habitat most of his life and still
raises birds today to use as live reference.
Waterfowl has always been his primary interest.
Blake is an avid waterfowl hunter and travels
all over to collect different types of specimens.
While on one of these hunting trips in the fall
of 1997, Blake met world-renowned taxidermist,
David Luke in Arkansas. That meeting resulted
in the beginning stages of Wings Over Water
Studios. Blake spent time working with David
in 1998 and since then has participated in many
competitions at the Master’s level and
has won numerous awards. Blake has become widely
known for his expertise, knowledge, and quality
of work. Blake's career is also his passion
and he looks forward to working with you on
your trophy bird of a lifetime.
