  1. Chainsaw Carver, Owner: Deadwood Tree Sculptures After attending the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for two and a-half years, Stacy Poitras started searching for a creative outlet that had less artistic attitude and more action and found chainsaw carving. Twenty five years later, he's still at it. "I am a real artist. I can sculpt, paint, draw and play music with either hand. I'm ambidextrous," stays Stacy. He describes himself as "hyper-sensitive with a near-photographic memory." Stacy feels that chainsaw carving is the perfect job for him because he loves that he's his own boss, he loves the danger and he loves to make art. He says that when he's working, "I see myself from a third party perspective. I'm a vessel that this cool stuff is flowing through. It's pretty cool to watch, and it gives me big muscles." Stacy brought his friend Rio into the business a few years back. They share heavy equipment, tools, beer and a love for the art. They also share a friendly rivalry. Stacy claims he is a far better carver, favoring a "realistic style" which he considers superior to Rio's carving, which he describes as "cartoony." Stacy has been with his girlfriend, actress and director Alison Eastwood, for three years.
