Amanda
United Kingdom
Amanda has mainly been influenced by Walter Potter,
who was one of the first to dress up preserved animals
in costumes. When the Potter collection was split up
and sold on to private collectors a few years back,
Amanda wanted to recreate some of the pieces herself,
as most of the collection would never be seen by
the public again. She now does generic taxidermy,
jewellery, and steampunk themed pieces on commission.

Amanda doesn't use animals that were killed for taxidermy,
she uses reptile feed, road kill and animals that
died naturally. She does taxidermy to preserve the
beauty of the animal.
amandasautopsies.com is now online! xx
