Welcome to Animal Art Taxidermy 

 

A bit about me.

I have been practicing the art of taxidermy, originally as a hobby since 1996.
Being a keen hunter myself and a passionate animal observer I am familiar with the behaviour and posture of both Australian and International game.
 
I take pride in myself knowing that I stay up to date with the latest innovations and products available in the taxidermy industry and then applying those techniques or products to the mounts I work on. When it comes to your trophy, I won't cut corners. I love what i do and it shows.
Custom mounts are my specialty. I love to do things differently, put some life, movement and attitude into the mounts i'm working on, have you looking for a pulse. I dont make copies of any of my customised forms so you know your mount is truely one of a kind.
If you are after a mount that is unique and stands out from the crowd, I can certainly help you achieve the look you wish to capture. Any look, any pose... remember, almost anything in nature can be replicated.
Commissioned peices are welcome, (non hunters & taxidermy collectors)
I am licensed to work on native fauna and a founding member of the Australian Association Of Wildlife Artists, formed in 2014.
 Animal art taxidermy is located in Raglan, Victoria,  just off the Western Highway, 10 minutes north of Beaufort. Once in Raglan head straight up Wilkinsons Rd and continue up Red Hill Rd.
I can arrange pick up/deliver to Geelong, Ballarat and Baccus Marsh for existing clients. For new clients delivery can also be arranged. (pick ups also in the future).
As mobile phone coverage in the area is genraly poor, the land line is the best contact: 0353497352
 

 Currently open Wednesday 9am to Sunday 3pm.
