KELLY'S WOODART... CARVING WITH VISION
Kelly Madsen creates art with a chainsaw and electric tools. Kelly has been chainsaw carving for sixteen years, has been recognized nationally on The Discovery Channel, PBS, and was in a national commercial. Her work is in collections nationwide and can be seen at the Country Club of Louisiana golf course and in many log homes and private collections.
Kelly participates in an Annual Craftsmen's Fair in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. She does carving demonstrations and sells her chainsaw sculpture. A Spring and Fall Show are held and Kelly is at both shows. This years dates are July, 2012 and October, 2012.
Born in Aberdeen, WA and raised in Idaho, Kelly relocated to Louisiana for five years and now resides in Sevierville, Tennessee. Kelly has raised three children Jacob, Gage, Angelee.
Kelly's chain saw wood carvings include animals, human faces and forms, and architectural beams, totems and other structural pieces for home interiors or exteriors. Some of her favorites are all kinds of bears, eagles, and Indian figures, but she carves many more subjects than are photographed here. Kelly carves mantles, panels for doorways and windows, and pre-made furniture.

"The minute, the very second I start the chainsaw it is done with prayer. First I pray for safety, then I pray for vision and then, as I carve, I am actually releasing love energy in my work. The love that I carve with is the reason I am still carving today." -- Kelly Madsen
