Covid 19 Update

UPDATE 27/01/2021

Sadly due to the announcement of the tougher restrictions of lockdown regulations due to the Covid-19 pandemic, any orders placed within this timeframe will be significantly delayed.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. Like most people, I am doing everything I can to maintain a ‘normal’ schedule and hope to be back in full swing as soon as the situation permits.

Stay safe and best wishes,


UPDATE 03/11/2020

With the announcement of the second lockdown, please note that any orders placed under the new regulations will be delayed until they have been lifted, hopefully on the 2nd December.

I will also be safely holding on to any existing commission work during this time.

If you have any questions or queries, please do get in touch.

Stay safe, stay strong and best wishes,


UPDATE 12/06/2020

Due to the lifting of certain aspects of the lockdown, I am now able to post out orders whilst adhering to the guidelines.

I’m still restricting going out and therefore ordering a lot of supplies from online, this includes packaging. So please allow a couple of extra days than usual for delivery.

I am happy to announce that my customers are now safely able to drop off and collect existing work at a safe distance .

If you have any questions or queries, please do get in touch.

Best wishes,


UPDATE 25/03/2020

Due to the recent restrictive lockdown measures in the UK, I’m now going to be postponing all orders until further notice.

I am in self isolation due to chronic health conditions. Regardless of this, we have been instructed by the government to not go out, unless it is absolutely essential anyway. I don’t want to put a strain on our delivery men, who are still keeping the country going by delivering essential items.

I hugely appreciate anyone that chooses to support me by making a purchase during this time, but please be aware, there will be a significant delay in getting these orders posted out.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Please stay home.


‘Friar Tuck’ Gloster Canary Taxidermy Commission

Now, I don’t usually take on pet commissions, but when a client got in touch about her beloved Gloster Canary, aptly named ‘Friar Tuck’, that had just passed, I couldn’t resist this one.

As I’ve had a lot of experience with birds, I feel a lot more confident taking on such a project as opposed to say, a dog or a cat (which I cannot see myself doing in the future at this point in time) as they carry so much more emotion and expression than birds.

They are still filled with just the same amount of character, none the less! I explained to the client that taxidermy is just a representation of a former animal and cannot carry their ‘spark’ or energy that you may have remembered him by. Once agreed to these conditions, I was happy to proceed.

I had lots of reference images of Friar Tuck from when he was alive that I payed closed attention too when I was modelling the bird. A as a result, the client is happy with how he looks and said:

Oh he looks absolutely amazing! You have done such a good job of capturing his character.

Which is always a massive relief to hear, especially when working on a bird with a bit more significance! This project was finished with installing him in to a nice glass dome with some moss that compliments his plumage well. He’ll be returning to his home next week.
