I’m Griffon Ramsey, an artist, entrepreneur, and YouTube personality working out of Austin, Texas. I have always been a creator and am fortunate enough to have built a career out of doing what I love and sharing it with the world.
In 2011, I picked up my first chainsaw and immediately fell in love with its power, versatility, and speed. My sculpting process is largely subtractive and the idea of creation through destruction appeals to me – cutting out what doesn’t need to be there to reveal the things that matter. My wood carvings are often inspired by fantasy, pop and gaming culture. Filming my process and sharing it on YouTube allows me to engage with my online community and collaborate openly with other creative people. One of the perks of my job is getting to travel to chainsaw carving events and competitions around the world.
My work can be seen locally in Austin, Texas in places like the French Legation Museum, as well as the People’s Gallery at Austin City Hall. I have sold pieces all around North America, Australia and the UK. When I’m not carving or out hunting materials, I enjoy singing, writing, video editing, and spending time with my family.
