Hi! I'm a taxidermist.
To me, Nature is God. Without it, we simply would not exist. Conserving the world’s natural spaces and the creatures that live there is paramount to the survival of humans as a species, and I have therefore dedicated my life to studying environmentalism in order to help people co-exist more successfully and sustainably with the natural world.

All natural materials I use in my creations are either sourced from roadkill, Fish and Game, secondhand sources such as fellow artists and estate sales, or are antique. In this way, I'm ensuring that no animals were needlessly killed for the sake of the artwork I produce. I fully believe that no part of any creature should go to waste if a purpose can be found for it, but I do NOT support trophy hunters or overseas fur farms by buying 'byproducts' like bones, skulls, or claws directly from them. The only exception I make for this rule is for parts from animals legally culled for population control programs approved by Fish and Wildlife.

As a photographer and wildlife enthusiast, I've been involved with many fantastic organizations such as Images4Life and Wild Tiger, as well as the Sierra Club and many smaller, local groups.
I've been published, interviewed, and even featured on Rainn Wilson (Dwight from “The Office”)'s personal networking website, SoulPancake.com.

I’ve also been blessed with the opportunity to visit many of the world’s most amazing wild places, like Komodo Island, Bali, Lombok, Malaysia, and the Cayman Islands, and have even documented entirely new species previously unknown to science.

Other interests include: Wilderness survival, primitive skills, backpacking, fishing, kayaking, boffing, airsoft, snowboarding, meandering around town, and caving.

 

A good friend and loyal customer of mine shared some unfortunate news this afternoon: Her kitten, with the adorable name of ‘Thing One,’ had an accident and fell from the loft this morning. Ms. Arthur reports: “She may have spinal injuries and possible broken bones, along with neurological problems. We took her to the vet earlier, who gave us pain meds, but we had to take her back in so that they can watch her overnight. The vet bills are really expensive so I am starting a vet fund to help save her life: Any donations are welcome and totally appreciated. I will also be taking sewing commissions and doing odd jobs if you wish to hire me. You can find my shop info on my facebook page at IdrisWhoDesigns. Everything counts! Thanks!”If you wish to donate, Ms. Arthur’s paypal email is marthur1990@live.com. Thing One’s current condition is iffy at best. She is at the vet’s office under constant watch and has been given steroids to keep the inflammation down. Ms. Arthur says that she is leaning heavily to her left side, where the worst of the injuries occurred. Surgery may be the only option for her. Please consider helping out a friend. Every dollar counts when it comes to saving a life.
