Sonny Amato, owner of “Artistry of Wildlife by Sonny” has been practicing taxidermy for over 46 years. He considers himself an Old Timer, learning the art in an era when taxidermy was a secretive business. Unlike today there were no schools, videos or seminars to teach aspiring taxidermists. The pic to the left is Sonny in 1962.
He began practicing taxidermy at the young age of 16,
and started his business shortly after. But the seeds of his success were
planted much earlier than that. As a youngster his interest and fascination
with wildlife led him to learn everything he could about all species. This
fostered his desire to learn the art of taxidermy, as he wanted to preserve
the beauty of these creatures that he so admired.
Sonny learned by extensive reference study and hands-on experience. As a self taught taxidermist, he continued to learn everything about the evolving taxidermy industry, keeping abreast of the latest techniques, and best practices, always using the highest quality materials available. Now 46 successful years later his business continues to thrive and grow.
Having vast experience in mounting all game, not specializing in just a few species, Sonny is very diversified in all areas of taxidermy. Taking great pride in his work he has the expertise to provide you with a superbly crafted quality mount with true lifelike features.
Always paying close attention to the finest detail in expression, composition and anatomy, he can offer you a truly beautiful mount that you will be proud to display. Your trophy will come to life bringing back fond memories of that special hunting or fishing trip.
To help provide a quality mount, keep that trophy in great shape. A taxidermist is not a miracle worker, and can only work with what you give them, so please read about proper field care. If you need further instruction, or have other concerns, please feel free to call Sonny day or night. On call 24-7 for your convenience: 225-241-0215. The Pic to the right is Sonny Present Day.
