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.
 
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 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.
 
Now accepting a limited number of pet cats or dogs per year & prices for all mounts on application.
 
Located in Lara, Victoria.
