About Will Fogarty

Based in Hospital, Co. Limerick, Ireland

My work consists of commissions I undertake in my workshop. This includes sculptures for County Councils, Tidy Town groups and private individuals.

My name is Will Fogarty and I am a self-taught, professional chainsaw sculptor living in Hospital, Co. Limerick.

I first picked up a chainsaw in 2013 – it was an old Homelite belonging to my Father and lesson number one was taking it apart and getting it running again… twelve chainsaws later, I think I might have an obsession.  The last ten years have been an amazing journey. I have worked all over Ireland on public and private works, I have met some wonderful people and made many great friends.

I now spend about half my time creating large sculptures for towns, parks schools, etc.  The other half is spent carving smaller commissioned pieces in people’s gardens or at home. I also give demonstrations throughout the summer months.
