About Us

our original creations

At White Faux Taxidermy, we are proud to say we created the original Bayer unicorn wall mount, Corduroy Jackalope, Walley Narwhal, and many more.

a modern twist

Taxidermy is a long-honored tradition giving tribute to the animal for providing.  With modernization, hunting & gathering is now limited to rural parts. However, the lasting tradition of taxidermy has lived on. Go faux and carry on the legacy.

our promise

Each sculpture is hand-painted in the U.S. using premium acrylic paints & best practices to reduce environmental impact.  We promise to deliver a truly unique sculpture at an affordable price.  

environment

Our goal is to provide a superior product that is both beautiful and painted in a manner that reduces environmental impact. Our facility recycles & ships using materials that can be repurposed.

premium artwork

Each original piece starts as a block of clay. Slowly, the artist begins to form until they have achieved a superior form. Using the form for limited-runs, we create small batches that are both affordable & custom.

exceptional care

We guarantee our work to be free of defects or we'll make it right. Each piece is carefully scrutinized for any flaws before it is gently packaged and shipped to you, wherever you are at in the world.

our history

Lets start at the beginning. The story begins with Marcos, born in Mexico circa 1985 and connects a few of years later to Paislea, born in Colorado circa 1990. Seemingly worlds apart, yet… fast forward to 2009, when Marcos meets Paislea at work. Some flirtation occurs and before you know it they discover their joint love for animals and nature.

Continue fast forwarding and you find them dating, talking about kids, life, several moves, marriage and a growing animal collection. They begin their animal collection with their two cats "Templeton" and "Edmonton", a salt-water tank filled with odd creatures, Wynn the mixed schnauzer, and temporarily fostering dozens of orphan cat families.

Being at a capacity for real animals, they decided to continue their love for animals by incorporating faux animal decor into their home. Paislea being the artistic one, and Marcos being the entrepreneur, they decided to customize their very own faux animal taxidermy to fit their home decor. Their love for bright colors, unique styles, and creativity gave birth to White Faux Taxidermy & Home Decor.

They knew their creations would be a hit so with marketing careers well underway they decide to turn a weekend project into a full time business.

From the crowded streets of SoHo to the busy nightlife of Tokyo, White Faux Taxidermy products have adorned the walls of thousands upon thousands of clients, businesses, hotels, and so much more. Sought after by well known interior designers from six of the seven continents, WFT has created a highly talked about and creative culture for not only the fashionable, but also the animal lover in every one of us. To keep up with production the team at WFT grew quickly and now consists of Paislea, Marcos, Ricardo, Stetson, & Ashley. 

From Real to Faux Taxidermy

Since 1748, taxidermy has been a form of art and a method to experience wildlife from regions unattainable to most.  The first animal to be taxidermied was a bird.  Nearly three centuries later, there are a variety of animals ranging from a number of classes and families; from the northern mountains, you can find deer, moose, wolves and even bunnies. However, venture into the African savannah, and there you will find numerous large cats, like lions, to various hoofed species of antelope, gazelle, zebras, giraffes, and even elephants and rhinos.  Unfortunately, many animals are endangers and are facing extinction due to the overhunting of their species.  However, with such a long history of taste, exploration, and self-reflection, taxidermy is a form of art that is here to stay. 1
