We are a family of artists. Kevin and Tyler Strauslin are a father and son team. They have a passion for carving and have both won carving awards. They specialize in sasquatches 9-12 ft tall, two of which were featured in popular animal and outdoor themed television programs including Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot! Their most notable, outstanding carves were two life-size carvings of the Crucifixion of Christ. Mother/wife Sue paints for the gallery. We also have guest rooms available at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/20354050?s=51 and https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21552585?s=51

Had a great time making a chainsaw bear. The instructions and guidance from Kevin and Tyler were such that we were able to make very presentable bears.

My husband and I had so much fun learning how to sculpt wood with chainsaws! Kevin is extremely talented, friendly, and a very patient teacher. We received lots of hands-on experience with portable chainsaws and other sculpting tools. As an added bonus, we got to play with Huckleberry, a hilarious and adorable cattle dog! This was such a unique and special experience and I highly recommend it to everyone.
