Michael Martineau was an artist his entire life. When he discovered chainsaw sculpting, he found that it allowed him to be creative by making something out of nothing. The statues can take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks to complete.
Michael would visualize what each piece of wood would be before he started carving based on the type of wood and its shape and color. Special orders always presented a welcome challenge and allowed Michael to utilize his artistic ability to envision the end result.
