Tom and Dawna have a business located in Brockport,PA. Both of them started caving in 2000 and are self taught, but have had influences from many wonderful artist from around the world. Each has their own individual style that gives more of an option to choose from at T & D Carvings. Dedication behind the saw has paid off for both of them in developing their talent.
They both have been a part of invitational only competitions, have been guests at nationally recognized carver shows, and have had the excitement of doing tag team speed carves with other recognized top carvers. Tom and Dawna have experience in hosting carver entertainment events also.
FUN THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING THIS YEAR
Their biggest function of the year is the famous Ridgway Chainsaw Carving Rendezvous in which they've been a part of since 2001. They get to spend time with 200+ carvers for a week in March. It is a great time to learn more about this art form and make new acquaintances. Tom and Dawna also attend some summer events such as "The Butler, PA invitational" chainsaw artists event, "Carving at the Pond" located at Sparrow Pond Camp Grounds in Erie, PA. And another fun and exciting event that T & D Carvings will be at is "Carving at the Casino" in Salamanca, New York. This is an event that they both help host. They bring in about 20 carvers from all over the country to carve for 3 days and then an indoor auction is held on all of the beautiful sculptures. They sign on some contracts to fairs and may do a competition or 2 during the 2016 year. When Tom and Dawna are not out on the road as performers, they spend time creating inventory for their shop. Their gallery consists of smaller and larger sculptures to choose from and they stay busy doing intricate commission pieces.
"We are blessed to be in this industry together and have opportunities to share our passion with so many talented friends from all over." Dawna said.
