Always a keen collector of natural history with an interest in preservation, I have worked in the field and taught taxidermy for over 10 years now. I pursue my craft with a fine art sensibility. I am also a vegetarian and work only animals that have not been killed for the purpose (ie - road kill, natural death, reptile food and pest control).
