Chainsaw Carvings By Jeff Samudosky
Born and raised in Shelton, Connecticut, Jeff studied art and photography in high school. After graduating, he traveled the continent as an Outward Bound instructor, ice climber, and whitewater rafting guide. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming he trained as an Alpine mountaineering guide and became certified as a wilderness emergency medical technician.
That was also the place where his life changed drastically. A crash while snowboarding left Jeff with a broken back and no feeling in his legs. After eight months of painful recovery, Jeff was back on his feet.
While visiting Vermont, he noticed some wood carvings along the side of a road. He thought, “I could do that” and that was the beginning of J.M.S. Wood Sculpture in 1998. The business has allowed Jeff to live all over the country and travel all over the world participating in competitions and become involved in the carving community.
