All of your taxidermy related questions, answered!
Due to the huge responsibility that comes with working with pets and for in depth reasons mentioned here, this is a service I do not offer. However, as a fine artist, I am able to paint a realistic portrait of your beloved pet as an alternative (subject to availability). This way, I can capture your pets character and ‘spark’, which is something that’s not possible with taxidermy.
Due to lack of time and resources, I do not currently offer classes or tuition on taxidermy.
Others are sourced from local roadkill, the result of a natural death from breeders, or the result of ethical, legal pest control.
I want to be the one to change people’s perception of taxidermists – I’m actively trying to support wildlife conservation charities by donating 10% of the sales made from my art and taxidermy to them. Suffolk Wildlife Trust being one of them that is close to my heart.
I am very aware of ever changing rules and regulations issued by DEFRA and I fully comply with various wildlife laws. I hold the required licenses for the possession of some protected species, such as CITES listed species. I am also a proud member of the UK Guild Of Taxidermists, which always keeps me up to date with various law changes.
If you have found a deceased animal and would like it mounted, it will need to be temporarily preserved until I can obtain the specimen. To do this, please make the specimen is well wrapped up in clingfilm (if possible) or a bag to be put in the freezer as soon as possible to keep it fresh.
Please note: I will only consider specimens if they are fresh, in good condition and were legally acquired.
