Thanks for visiting my web site. Here is a little bit about me.
I have always been a naturalist and a keen birder and, since I was six years old (the age at which my teacher put one of my pictures on the wall of my infants' school), I have been an artist too. I have been trying to bring these two interests together recently, and have found taxidermy to be an art form that embodies both a love of nature and a love of aesthetics. Granted, it isn't always contemporary, but taxidermy is always engaging. Right now I am writing a dissertation for a PhD on contemporary taxidermy art at the University of the Arts in London. If you are interested in contemporary taxidermy, do please contact me. Richard Crawford
