D.I.Y Taxidermy, Artist Talk and Jordans Pussy Exclusive with the W.I

I was asked to do a talk at the W.I Dalston Darlings last month. They were searching for inspirational woman and apparently I was one of them. I completely forgot until the day before so had done no prep or advertising but by the time I started the room was bursting at the seams with young woman so I had no reason to stress no one would come.  I did a little talk, a lot of talking really and then we got cracking with an exclusive: Jordan's Pussy- a dried out cat carcass put in the pose of a cat (and Jordan on her beach catalog shoot) which we would dress for the first time since it had been skinned.

TOP 5 U.K Taxidermsists

According to hugely reliable resources at   I am one of the top 5 U.K taxidermists: TOP 5 UK TAXIDERMISTS Very funny article: "Charlie Tuesday Gates Newly well known UK Taxidermist Charlie Thursday Gateways not only generates her own perform through the method of taxidermy, she also serves frequent DIY Taxidermy activities where those fascinated are welcomed to get some hands on face in the strange world of pet carnation. She is another UK Taxidermist who will be displaying her encounter at 2012’s Brighton Fashion week with a discuss. While the artist’s perform is not quite attractive it is under no circumstances boring." If that's not something to believe I don't know what is.  Next D.I.Y Taxidermy LIVE show coming up in October. "You certainly won't be bored!"
