I am an amateur taxidermist working in Surrey since 2018. I mainly work with British Native Wildlife which has died accidentally or as result of pest control/culling. No animal or bird has ever been killed for the purposes of my taxidermy. I donate a percentage of any profit to local wildlife rehabilitation.
Creating something beautiful and enduring from our precious native wildlife is immensely satisfying, and feels to me like the purest form of recycling. My primary interest is birds and, like most taxidermists, I strive for a naturalistic mount. I also work on mammals and occasionally pose smaller specimens in anthropomorphic poses.
I am a member of the Guild of Taxidermists, and follow all protocols and legislation related to protected species.
Taxidermy pieces can be aesthetic additions to the decor and ambience of many rooms. You can view many examples of my work in the Gallery.
I also take commissions; if this is relevant to you, please contact me to discuss your ideas and requirements.
