|About the Artist|
Over the years I have taken numerous road-trips out to the West of the United States. My favorite state happens to be Colorado and that is where I stumbled upon carving. I did not know what tools were used on the carvings I viewed out there, but traveled to a local store in Canon City, CO and purchased cold chisels and a hammer. Okay, that did not work, so I made it a point to figure out what I needed. Believe it or not, most was just from trial and error. Now that I figured out that it was done with chainsaws and I had never even held a saw before, I was a little scared to try it. Okay, a lot scared!! But I did it!!! And the rest has been an ongoing love for chainsaw carved art.
P.S. - There was a little bit of a fine arts background because I have always had an interest in art.
