Welcome to Animal Art Taxidermy 

 Award winning mounts.


A bit about me.

I have been practicing the art of taxidermy 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.
In May 2009 I traveled to St Charles, Missouri, USA to compete at the World Taxidermy Championships and also attended various training seminars and I am happy to say I received a second place score in the Professional division category for Gameheads with a coyote pedestal mount.
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 apply 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 a specialty and I love to do things differently, put some life into those mounts, so if you are after a mount that is truly unique and stands out from the crowd, I can certainly help you achieve the look you wish to capture... remember, almost anything in nature can be replicated.
 I am also a founding member of the Australian Association Of Wildlife Artists, formed in 2014.
 I do offer a pet taxidermy service, prices on application.
From October 1st, Animal Art Taxidermy will be located at a larger premisis at Raglan, Vic.  Its just off the Western Highway, 10 minutes from Beaufort. I can arrange pick up/deliver to Geelong, Ballarat and BaccusMarsh for existing clients. For new clients delivery can also be arranged. (pick ups also in the future).
I would like to thank you for your patience late September - October as I relocate.
