Artist Statement of Thomas Craggs

I have now found the art form for which I am now practising and love the art of chainsaw carving wood sculptures. All my carvings are made from trees which have either fell naturally or need to be felled for woodland management purposes.
I see the trees come back to life in my artistic struggle working against the grain, with all of the beauty of the wood showing through.
Please dont hesitate to contact me.
