I treat all projects as if they are my very own animals. I strive to produce the best possible quality possible, while still maintaining a quick turn-around time at an affordable price. I take the time to do the job the right way even if it means spending extra time on a mount to ensure a highest standard of work. I regularly take customer mounts to taxidermy competitions and have won many awards with them at the Masters and Professional levels in several states and at the World Taxidermy Championships.

I start with properly prepping a hide for a high quality commercial tanning as this helps to ensure a good looking hide to last for many years to come.

I strive to use the most modern and up-to date techniques, along with using reference materials helps ensure realistic life-like mount you can be proud to show off for years to come.
