Jason Fisk
I’ve been an artist all my life and started getting into chainsaw carving since 2000.  I live in a redwood forest on the coast of California which has provided me with a wealth of beautiful redwood to carve and the inspiration to do it.  I’ve never competed in a woodcarving conpetition before but I’m a fast and detailed carver that creates original works of art.  It would be my dream come true to have the opportunity to compete at Carve Carrbridge.

I am a UK based Chainsaw Sculptor from East Sussex. I have been chainsaw carving since 2011, Full time 2 years. I carve at many of the living heritage shows across the country, as well as Woodfest country show (North Wales)
I thrive on the pressure from the speed carves throughout these events and I enjoy the competitive elements of live events. Throughout the shows last year I have become recognised for my unique figures which adopt an abstract finish to encourage the audience to engage and connect with the overall composition, and to bring their own experiences and perspective in response to the sculpture. My sculptures are a playful exploration of motion and movement in the human form through the deliberate and skilled use of positive and negative space.
