Isaac Wayne Bodine was born in Indiana, just a stones throw from Tennessee. His mother named him Isaac after hearing his name from her maker. Good omen. At the age of 3, his family moved to California where he was strongly influenced by his grandparents, Hazel and Wayne Burston and his uncle down the road. Strongest influence however, was his great grandmother who unfortunately died when he was 5. But, she left him with strong moral values and an unwavering love of his God. Fortunately, his grandfather then took Isaac under his wing and taught him equestrian skills. Additionally, as life does, it took Isaac to many dark corners where his deep faith sustained him with continual hope. He now lives in Gainesboro Tennessee with his where his chainsaw art blossoms. Isaac Wayne Bodine is married to a wonderful women named Kathy. He carves out huge pieces of his time dedicated to his boys as a patient and attentive father and devoted husband. He attends a local church just down the road from where you can see his works take shape. Isaac has a huge heart. His children appreciate his art and become his "pit crew" to help him stay concentrated on using imagination to create dreams in wood. For the Bodine's, his labors of love are a family affair.
