ABOUT THE ARTIST
Derrick Stanton was born a Californian, but was always an Alaskan at heart, developing a love for the great outdoors when his family moved to Oregon.
Derrick came to Alaska in 2006, working on a commercial fishing site. He married the boss’s daughter and sank his roots into the last frontier.
Derrick started making log furniture but jumped at the chance to work with a chainsaw artist. In just a week, Derrick saw that this would fulfill his childhood passion for art and woodwork.
Since then, he has carved full-time, creating well over 1,000 sculptures. He has won competitions and sent pieces as far away as Germany and Australia. Derrick Stanton Log Works is still expanding and Derrick remains passionate about improving his craft.
DSLW is a family business. Derrick and Becky use their time in the business to be with their children and train them. Working together, they develop the character and values of the God kind. For the Stantons, DSLW is not all about carving, but is a place where their faith meets their daily life.
