Welcome to Animal Art Taxidermy 

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 behavior, attitude 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 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. Mammals, and now birds, are my passion.
Custom designed mounts are a specialty of mine. 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 customized forms so you know your 'custom' mount is exactly that,  custom, 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, anywhere... remember, almost anything in nature can be replicated. If your after a quick turnaround, I would suggest trying elsewhere.
Commissioned pieces are also welcome, (non hunters, artists, home furnishing designers & taxidermy collectors).
I am licensed to work on  deer, game birds & native fauna, (and any pest species that require no license),  I also work on pets when I have room. I do have long turn around times.
I am also a proud founding member of the Australian Association Of Wildlife Artists, formed in 2014.
Sorry, I am closed to new clients at the moment due to high work loads.

Regards, Samantha.
