Devon Owl - Woodland Leisure Park 
The owl has just landed and is about to munch her snack! After thinking long and hard that was the best solution for this oak stump peering over a bench where walkers might be taking a hard earned rest and eating their snacks too.
Peacock - Woodland Leisure Park 
The owner requested something natural and taking a moments thought to watch the peacocks strutting boldly around gave me the obvious inspiration for this lonely ash tree, a particularly bolshy peacock having a domestic with some squirrels.

Westonbirt 2009 
The Festival of the Tree is the most important woodcraft exhibition of its kind. The National Arboretum at Westonbirt, is a spectacular tree garden, home to a historical collection of over 3000 different tree and shrub species many of witch are rare or endangered in their native lands. Established in the Victorian era, today the arboretum offers a place to relax and get back to nature. And then we come with chainsaws...
The inspiration for Hands on Heart was the ability for hands to communicate feelings without words. The sculpture shows bubbles of love sprouting out of the fingertips. www.forestry.gov.uk/westonbirt

Woodland Leisure Park Devon 
A challenging project, after producing the designs I only had 2 days to finish each sculpture and with a central location in the park I wanted them to be striking. Upon checking the beech wood I found that because they had been felled 2 years ago there was a lot of rot that had to be worked around. Beech should be painted with preservative to ensure the sculptures last as it can rot much quicker than oak. www.woodlandspark.com

Westonbirt 2008 
Every year for the last two decades a group of twelve chainsaw carvers gather at Westonbirt and sculpt across the week sculptures up to 3m high. The participants come from as near and far as the visitor's and it's a great opportunity for us carvers to catch up and see what's happening in the chainsaw carving world. So if you like what you see come to westonbirt next year to the Festival of the Tree and help fund Tree Aid to plant more trees in rural Africa. www.forestry.gov.uk/westonbirt www.treeaid.org.uk
The Bear 
The first of my chainsaw art commissions turned out rather well. One giant bear and 4 smaller sculptures created for Celtic Harmony Camp. After sourcing the wood and making the sculpture elsewhere, the bear went for an interesting journey on the M25 and caused a little bit of havoc. Bears are extinct in this country didn't you know?

Pear and Apple wood Dragon, 03
 
The dragon was painstakingly hand carved from pear tree, on the premises of Edward II; I lived here on top of where the old Palace once stood. In the naive early days of my business i spent a whole year carving this for a measly commission, which never got paid. For this reason the Dragon remains and although Iím rather fond of it, i donít have the space (it needís a minimum height of 4.5m so there is a 2 metre clearance to be able to walk underneath it) and will consider any reasonable offers.
