Charlie Volk

Eagle, AL, United States

My name is Charlie Volk, I started chainsaw carving about 12 years ago after retiring from construction work. At the time I knew nothing about carving. I live in a log house and wanted some carvings for around it. I went all over to find and maybe purchase some, but never found any that I liked. so I put a chainsaw in my hands and started to carve on my own, I was not very good back then. I carved a bear and asked my wife what she thought of it, She said "that is sure a cute pig". This upset me, so I practiced and practiced until I finally achieved a carving that resembled a bear. Since then I have carved eagles, owls, fish and many other things. I have had commissions for many pieces and have won many carving competitions. I have sold carvings all over the state, and my work is primarily done only with chainsaws. Hope you enjoy Art prize 2017
