My Skills


Category: Art / Creative
Realistic fish carving with habitats. I take your photograph and develop a beautiful lifelike replica for your office,home or any place you would display fine art. The final product is significantly better than a traditional taxidermy mount and actually increases in value with age.
Email me with your picture and I will give you idea on what the project might involve!

design,develop,and maintain wildlife ecosytems using various methods. I have developed a 250 acre sanctuary in Northern Michigan that has produced outstanding results both in wildlife and land appreciation. Email me and we can discuss your project and how to get started...I can't promise but many times the work is self funded through grants, and timber sales so you end up with the best pf all worlds...... a better ecosystem for minimal investment!
