Doug Lingelbach

Doug Lingelbach was born and raised in Saskatchewan.  As he was training to become an arborist over 20 years ago, he used his talent with a chainsaw to carve a chair out of a giant cottonwood tree.  This led to various styles of sculpture created from the wood he became acquainted with through his relationship with trees.  Doug’s sculpture is called Chief Two Makes one
