Jeffrey Michael Samudosky
While on his way to snowboard in Vermont Jeff noticed wood carvings along the side of a road. Inspired by this idea, in 1998, JMS Wood Sculpture was born.
Over the past 20 years, wood carving has allowed Jeff to live all over the country and travel across the world participating in competitions, and events both individually and as part of the Bear Hollow crew.
Jeff was featured as the anatomy specialist on two episodes of the television show Saw Dogs in 2012, “Race to the Finish” and “First Breath,”. His sculptures where in National Geographic Kids UK magazine issue 145, Wood Carving Illustrated issue 82, Odd is Art, published by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, and Who’s Who in Visual Art, Vol. 2018-2019, and Redwood Burl, by Adam Dias.
Jeff was selected to design and create the animal sculptures placed in the Apses around the exterior of the building.
