I’ll be away from 26 August – 10 September 2018.

All orders placed in this time will be resumed on the 10th September.

I’ll be heading away on holiday to Vermont soon, I’m very excited!

Especially excited to see some North American wildlife. It’s a part of the world I’ve always wanted to visit.

I’ll have limited access to wifi, so any queries sent in this time frame will be answered as soon as I’m back.

Best wishes,


Taxidermy Red Squirrel

Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) Taxidermy Commission

I’ve never worked with a Red Squirrel before, only our invasive Grey’s, so this project was a real treat!

Unfortunately this little Red Squirrel was found on the side of the road in Cumbria by the client as the result of a road traffic accident.

I’m surprised at just how much smaller and fluffier they are compared to Grey Squirrels!

This poor squirrel had a badly smashed up skull, which made taking measurements needed for eye placement and facial features impossible.

I took a death mask of her before I started work, which helped me to roughly estimate where certain things had to be placed.

In this process, I made an alginate cast and poured plaster of Paris in to it to get a 3D model of her head.

She was placed on a piece of wood provided by the client and she’s going to be placed pride of place in the corner.


Taxidermy Goldcrest – The smallest bird!

The Goldcrest (Regulus regulus)

One of the taxidermist’s greatest challenges.

Here are the results of the gorgeous little Goldcrest I recently completed.

Considering how small and fiddly it was, I am extremely pleased with how it came out!

The glass dome with the pine foliage really sets this piece off.

It’s now in it’s new home with the owner who found this poor bird laying in the middle of the road.

She is really pleased with how it turned out and she left me a lovely review!


I am extremely pleased with my Goldcrest commission from Taxidermy co.

Krysten created a simple mount in a protective dome that fulfilled my brief perfectly, showcasing the tiny form of the Goldcrest in a fabulous way. She listened to my brief, ensured that the work stayed within budget and regularly updated me with her progress.

After completion, the item arrived in quick time and extremely well packaged. I would not hesitate to commission again


I really do get to work with some lovely people.
