      I'll bet this is from Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec, it reminds me very much of the work of PE Caron . Google search PE Caron to see what I am referring to. There were other wood carvers in Quebec that studied and imitated him, so you could say from the school of PE Caron to describe the sculpture.
      Just to be honest, Caron was a master, his family and other artists tried to equal him, but they usually failed. Your sculptures are very nice, but the quality is somewhat below. But do not worry, their are many collectors of Canadian Folk sculpture (including me) and would be happy to own them. I hope that this is of some help, all are my opinions and I have been known to be wrong. Good Luck!
