Welcome to Martin's Taxidermy Studio & Wildlife Artistry. We are a family owned business who strive to give our customers competition quality work at competitive pricing. We have been in business since 1994 and have been a "full-service" taxidermy studio since 2002. This allows us to give greater attention to each and every mount so better detail and realism is achieved. Although we mount mammals and birds, we each  specialize in different areas. My husband specializes in birds and habitats. He concentrates on birds and habitats only and his passion for waterfowl really comes through as you can see by the awards he has won. I specialize in bear, small mammals and whitetail but I also mount other mammals as well like exotics and big game. I have a passion for black bear and foxes that reflect in my work and you can see that in the awards I have won as well. Having two partners specializing in different areas creates diversity in our business. This allows us to give you greater quality mounts in all areas. Our custom bases and habitats are very elaborate, transforming your trophy into a work of art to proudly display and gaze upon. We also enjoy competing in several surrounding state associations including Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland's Eastern Regional's. This allows us to attend seminars and have our work critiqued by nationally known taxidermists so we can continually improve our skills. This gives you a quality, realistic mount that you can enjoy for many years.

This page was last updated on: September 9, 2016

We specialize in waterfowl, bears, small mammals and whitetail deer but excel in many other categories such as exotics, upland game, big game, african, and large mammals. What allows our business to excel in so many categories is that both of us specialize in different areas. My partner has a passion for waterfowl and specializes in birds and habitats. He concentrates all of his talents on those two areas. I have a passion for black bears and foxes but also excel in whitetails and other small mammals. I concentrate all of my talents on small and large mammals, big game and exotics. We are able to give our customers quality mounts in a variety of categories. 

We have done many deer remounts of 30+ year old deer heads, giving up-to-date realism to an old set of antlers. The customer can once again enjoy his trophy.
Many other services include euromounts, skull cleaning, elaborate habitats, half lifesize mounts, antler mounts, rugs, wall pedestals and custom base work. Call for prices.
We take pride in using competition quality materials in all mounts. Competition quality earliners with inner ear detail, competition ears and nose septum's give our deer an incredibly realistic look. The materials may cost more but we fill the finished product is worth the money. We offer a variety of deer forms with many poses to better accent your trophy rack.
