The art of taxidermy - reuse and conservation

I am passionate about our environment and wildlife, and people often ask about how this sits with being a contemporary taxidermy artist. All the creatures I use have either died naturally or I seek out vintage taxidermy to reuse in my work.

In this photo you can see a collection of antique fox masks. I have a background in conservation, so here Danni Bradford is at work at my North Devon studio carrying out sympathetic restoration on them so they can be used again.
