We take pride in our unique metal artwork. We couldn't do it without a little elbow grease and a lot of inspiration!
Greg Millard, Metal Artist
Greg Millard has been working with steel since he was 16. Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he enjoys being able to do something he loves: making unique works of art from metal of all shapes and sizes that end up all over the great state of Wisconsin and beyond.
He got his start in metalwork when he began working for Milwaukee Road alongside his father in his teens. He went on to start his own trailer manufacturing business in Bella Vista, Arkansas, named Vista Trailers, just a few years later. Over the course of 10 years Greg has successfully built over 3,000 trailers and repaired over 2,500 more.
From all of this traveling he has been inspired to come up with metal designs that mimic nature and can be easily added to any home or business. With a dismal economy slowing down business, Greg had time to take up a new passion: coming up with unique sculptures out of recycled metal and scrap metal he had sitting around collecting dust. Thus, Vista Metal Artworks was born!
About Vista Metal Artworks
Vista Metal Artworks came about after business was slow and there were a lot of pieces of metal just sitting around the shop, waiting to be used. After some careful planning and skillful welding, Greg's first creation was made: a big moose that stood tall and proud.
It all began when people started taking notice and asked for their own moose for their yards. Soon after, their friends started asking, too. Some asked for moose while others asked for deer or other custom pieces - all of which Greg designed and made.
Greg now creates all types of things seen in nature and he's always working on something new.
