I am a working memberof the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists and abide by their ethical standards. All of the animals used in my pieces were either frozen for reptile food or are surplus/unwanted parts from other industries. No animals were killed specifically for use in my work.

I am very happy to take commissions, so if you have an idea for a piece of rouge taxidermy or a custom couture item, provided it can be produced within my code of ethics I'd love to work with you to make your vision a reality. Also, if you see something in my shop but would like it customised, I will be happy to create it for you. Message me for details.
