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.
 
Located in Raglan, Vic.  Its just off the Western Highway, 10 minutes inland 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).
As mobile phone coverage in the area is genraly poor, the land line is 0353497352
