The Art Of Taxidermy
As well as being a graphic designer and Illustrator, when I get the time I also practice the art of Taxidermy.
I have always had a big love and fascination for natural history and wildlife since a very young age.
I also love to study the anatomy of animals of all kinds, so I have been an avid animal skull collector for some time now.
In early 2014, I took my first taxidermy lesson at St Bartholomew hospital, London; I was instantly hooked on this bizarre and incredible art form.
Later on in 2014, I graduated University from University Campus Suffolk in Bury St Edmunds with a Bachelor’s First Class Honours degree after studying graphic communications for 3 years. My final major project consisted of my passions for both design and taxidermy – they collided to make my own taxidermy brand – ‘Perished Pets’.
I have recently rebranded my Taxidermy sideline to ‘Taxidermy Co.’ which now sells not only contemporary taxidermy, but my fine artwork, jewellery, faux taxidermy and many other weird and wonderful items such as my ‘Repeat Skull Pattern’ series printed on scarves and tea towels.
