Meet the maker Graham Cappleman

I have always loved art and working with different medias. I love wood as a media having spent my working life as an Arborist. A few years I started doing chainsaw sculpture and sculpted easter islands heads, toadstools and fish. I now work in a different media using driftwood collected from my many visits to north east coast, mainly Whitby.

Sometimes, when I'm out walking my dogs, I pick up an odd piece of driftwood from our local river beach and my large mother whale is sculpted from this. I love the different shapes, colours and textures driftwood has got to offer.
