Nigel is a self-taught woodcarver with a background in forestry. He produces large wooden sculptures using a chainsaw for much of his work. Dabbling with carving since 1995 Nigel has made a part-time career of sculpture since 2005. Usually working to commission he specialises in producing sculptures for public places such as parks, cyclepaths and schools. Most of his work is in his home area of Lincolnshire but he has taken part in chainsaw carving events such as Sculptree at Westonbirt Arboretum. Sometimes experimenting with abstract, most of Nigel`s work is figurative and he aims to make it believable but simple.
