Jon Vincent Antonuk, President, Founder
Jon is a professional chainsaw carver and picked up a chainsaw for the first time in 2008. Throughout the years he has met a number of fellow artists, and in 2012 decided to put together From the Forest.
Erin was born and raised in the Adirondacks, and grew up with strong sense for art throughout her life. She is a very important part, adding the woman's touch to From the Forest.
Mike is here carving a pumpkin for a fund raiser for the Mohawk N.Y. boy scout troop. Mike is Jon and Erin's business partner. As well, Jon's apprentice. Mike brings a unique skill set that combines artistic talent with technical skills.
