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 creates generic taxidermy, jewellery, wet specimens and steampunk themed pieces on commission as a self-funding hobby, and occasionally performs live taxidermy for educational purposes.
