From Concept To Completion

My name is Allen Stichler and I’m an artist based in North Lincolnshire, specialising in unique hand-carved wood sculptures.

Working closely with the client, I will develop an original design to agreed specifications ; from initial discussions through to sample sketches, and on to the final design and carving of a personal and individual sculpture to treasure.

Sculptures can either be carved on a tree or stump already within a garden or public space, or wood of most dimensions can be supplied. Smaller carvings to enjoy indoors are also an option, such as panels / plaques or 3-dimensional pieces.

This is an opportunity to commission an individual piece of art to your own design, either to own or to give as an unusual gift.

As well as public or private commissioned work, I am available for carving workshops (with adults and / or children, including those with disabilities), community art or schools projects, events and carving demonstrations.

As an artist I am inspired by our folklore, customs and traditions, as well as the natural world around us ; these elements are explored in various carvings, but also in paintings and lino-cuts.
