My name is Quint and I am a professional chainsaw carver. I’ve been full time carving for 7 years; before that I was a furniture maker for 10 years and started off as a roofing joiner at the age of 17, so I have been involved with wood all my life. I carve at Living Heritage shows from March till November and also produce commission carvings for private clients. Carving at Living Heritage has given me the chance to carve with many other carvers at the shows and also in competitions which is amazing I enjoy carving at shows for the public and most of all enjoy speed carving in the main arena were carvers produce a carving in half an hour.
I started carving wooden sculptures a few years ago. I chose wood as a medium as I have always been involved in the timber industry as a tree surgeon & landscape gardener, so for me wood carving has been a natural progression and art is my first love. I had a desire to create garden sculptures after felling trees as part of landscaping jobs it just seemed to bring the tree back to life (this is how I came up with the name Tree cycle). The chainsaw was always going to be my chosen tool, for me it is a part of who I am. I enjoy the speed and agility that all my different chainsaws give me. I work from two sites, my worksite looks out over the sea on the North Wales coast
