Artist: Joel Palmer - (506) 260-9464
Most of his works are carved entirely with a chainsaw, making his pieces one of a kind in every way. He has an eye and ability to create incredible detail with just his saws. Other carving tools are sometimes used to give greater realism and special textures.
Joel has been artistic his whole life and has experimented with various mediums before discovering chainsaw art. The journey has just begun with this wonderful art form yet it has been something he's been working at his whole life. Many
of the projects on this site are Joel's first pieces - a far
cry from where his work has progressed to today. It is his constant
dedication and desire to improve as an artist that makes Swamp Bear now
one of the top in his profession. In just 3 years of being in the business, Swamp Bear has won two Atlantic Canada Sculpting Championships and competed with professionals from Atlantic Canada to the Pacific Coast, showcasing his work among the best of the best. In 2016 Joel won the "Peoples Choice" award at a prestigious national sculpture competition with artist of varying mediums. 2017 was another great year for Swamp Bear with another Gold place win in Eibau, Germany with team Stihl Canada. in A true artist that continues to thrive on creativity and challenge.
