Natural History Museum Residency

posted 2012 Jul by Allis Markham

 Good news and bad news for Prey clients & fans - through summer of 2013, I will be working fulltime for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. I've been an avid taxidermy volunteer at the museum for some time now and am very excited to be officially working for this wonderful institution. Obviously this is a huge opportunity to be immersed in taxidermy under the Master Taxidermist, Tim Bovard and to work on animals that many taxidermist only dream of. I couldn't be happier.

However, this does mean that I will only be able to take a limited number of private commissions (if any) and will have a difficult time ramping up for any taxidermy classes. I get many requests for taxidermy classes and have delayed replying because I'm not sure of my availability. I am keeping all of the inquiries, and will notify all of you when i'm able to commit to a new class. 

In the meantime, feel free to visit me and all the wonderful taxidermy at the Natural History            Museum of Los Angeles.  



  • I want to take a class so bad! If you are not available, are there any suggestions for classes in the LA area??

  • I’m very interested in future taxidermy classes!
