Jason J. Swain: A New Use for Fallen Trees- An Art form

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, most people were surveying the damage to their property and calling their power companys. One Kensington, Maryland artist and chainsaw wood cutter, Jason J. Swain, however was looking forward to the storm for the fallen trees and the growth of his wood cutting business.

"Power outages aside, it's not a bad time for me. I'm a portrait artist, but I started doing chainsaw cutting about five years ago when I'd see large trees fall and wood going to waste after severe storms. Everytime a storm comes by, I go looking for wood," explained artist Jason J. Swain.

Born in Brisbane, Australia, Jason comes from a long family tradition of artists. He has a love for the outdoors, which can be seen in his many animal wood carvings.

"There is so much nice wood in Maryland and instead of throwing it out, I turn it into a nice piece of art work," said Swain.
