Part of my training as a bespoke Furniture Designer & Maker was an introduction in how to use the chainsaw – little did I know that this skill would take me up and down the country creating chainsaw sculptures for private clients, Michelin star restaurants, schools and local authorities.

Chainsaw carving is a very versatile art form – from a standing tree trunk, a lump of timber or a planked board, all can be worked to make beautiful wooden sculptures and furniture for both indoors and outdoors.

My commissioned work over the last 15 years has ranged from 8 metre tall totem carvings to free standing and fitted furniture, with water features and stone sculptures somewhere in between. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and if you would like to contact me, please do call or email.
