Albino Whitetail Doe Front View
Pretty little albino whitetail doe. Last tanned mount to finish up, now I can start experimenting with alternatives to tanning. Older mount from a couple years ago, didn't get a deposit so have been slowly puttering away at it, hope the customer will pick it up! I'm not sure what to call this pose; there's a similar one called "curious alert."

Antler Mount Golden Forest Camo
Whitetail antler mount with fall forest camo (with a deer!), an oak panel, and gold cord trim. This was a fun new fabric to try out.

Alaskan Moose Antler Mount in Grey
Alaskan moose antler mount with grey velvet covering and a simulated weathered wood panel. This was quite a project! I couldn't even lift it by the time it was finished.

Katie Crowley
Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
My name is Katie Crowley and I’m an artist and taxidermist. I live in beautiful Duluth, MN, nestled between Lake Superior and the north woods. I have a BA in Art with an emphasis in sculpture from Minnesota State University Moorhead. During a model making internship with the Smithsonian, I worked on displays in the National Museum of Natural History and other Smithsonian museums. I also craft gut strings for instruments such as violins, but my core passions are taxidermy, painting, and sculpture.

In addition to creating artwork, I focus on game head and life size mammal mounts and am happy to meet your taxidermy needs in these areas. I completed game head and small mammal mounting courses at The American Institute of Taxidermy and trained on deer heads with the talented Jim Willard. I’m also a member of the Minnesota Taxidermy Guild, Wisconsin Taxidermists Association, and United Taxidermists Association. For me, taxidermy is about preserving the beauty of an animal, and I’m passionate about doing that from the overall impression and personality down to the small details. Each mount is a work of art, from a simple, rustic antler mount to a complex, full body mount with habitat.

All of my work is inspired by nature, and I spend time studying north woods flora, fauna, and landscapes to ensure that my depictions of them are accurate. If I’m not working in my shop, you will probably find me somewhere out in the woods peering at plants, looking for wildlife, or just enjoying the scenery.
