Cochrane Creations Chainsaw Carvingwww.ArtPal.com/ScottCochrane
Scott Cochrane lives in Southern Alberta, just north of Airdrie with his 3 kids and wife. Scott has always had a construction background so it was natural when he started constructing Timber frame homes. Using a chainsaw to scribe dovetail joinery from timbers and eventually logs, these are the things that inspire Scott. It wasn't until two and a half years ago Scott did his first piece of chainsaw art. A wood spirit named "Tim" haha. We lived in the NW of Calgary at the time and the neighbour's didn't take to kindly to the high pitched sound of a 2-cycle engine all day. So Scott traveled out west to the forestry reserve that is north of Waiporous to do the next 40 carvings. Nobody complained out there! Eventually we acquired a little 4 acre parcel north of Airdrie that we now call home with no neighbour's for 6-8 kms. It's our little slice of heaven.
Our children, all three girls, are a big part of what I do. I am able to include them in the creations I make so they feel a sense of accomplishment themselves.
