I am a sculptor of trees and logs - using mainly chainsaws. My home is in Rostherne, Cheshire, England, and I have a sculpture studio in Mobberley, Cheshire(*see note below). where there are sometimes a few items available for sale. My brother Andy works from the same location, my wife Michele and my son Mike.
(* NOTE:If my location is nowhere near to you then you could still contact me to find an excellent chainsaw sculptor in your area. I know the best in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world - so I will be able to put you in contact with them).
You can see photos of some of my chainsaw sculptures by scrolling down the page and 'clicking' on any of the photos on the left or right side of the screen. The photos on the right - under 'Creating the Wizard of Thieves Hollow', show 'step by step' how a carving is created. I do not take or publish photos of all my carvings - for example, owls, eagles, buzzards and bears.

Thanks for having a look at my website.
In 2014 I will be sculpting and/or exhibiting at a number of Shows- the dates of which I will publish here when they are settled.
I mainly use Stihl, Echo and Husquvarna chainsaws - they are excellent. I take commissions to sculpt trees and logs. I have created sculptures for individuals, businesses, Councils, schools, the Forestry Commision and charities. I also give chainsaw carving and sculpture demonstrations (including ice-carving) at functions, events, schools, and colleges. Give me a call if you would like a quote - my rates are very reasonable
If you are having a tree felled, then you may want to ask the 'feller' to leave you with a stump that can be sculpted into something of your choice. Alternatively, if the whole of a much-loved tree is removed then you might want to keep some of the trunk for a unique sculpture to be created for your garden/school/workplace. I also create sculptures fromrecently felled 'green' logs - wood that would otherwise be burnt or left to rot.
If you want a tree felled, and/or tables and benches constructed from the logs from a tree then speak to Richard Wainwright of Wainwright Tree and Timber Services (WTTS) M: 07774 799935. Richard is EXCELLENT - I get all my oak from him and he does all installations for my brother Andy and myself.
