Carv­ings trans­form gar­den

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A DUNDEE wood carver has trans- formed his gar­den into a lo­cal tourist at­trac­tion with an ar­ray of colour­ful crea­tures and char­ac­ters.

Christo­pher Bow­man, 49, took up the craft less than three years ago but his work is al­ready draw­ing crowds to his Gle­nea­gles Av­enue home.

Mr Bow­man, who lives at the prop­erty with his part­ner Elaine Walker, 41, cre­ates the pieces by us­ing a chain­saw to block out shapes from logs do­nated by friends in the forestry in­dus­try.

With the Christ­mas sea­son fast ap­proach­ing, Mr Bow­man now plans to dec­o­rate the gar­den with fairy lights and or­na­ments to turn it into a true wood carv­ing win­ter won­der­land.
