Johnson, who was previously a children’s knitwear designer and toy maker, has combined her skill sets to create one-off taxidermy pieces complete with handmade outfits and unique personalities.
She appears on email exchanges to be perfectly sane, and obviously loves her career, and has had some success – her cute creations have been shown in LiveLuxe in Wendover, which is nothing less than gorgeously tasteful.
Johnson specialises in anthromorphic taxidermy, which I think basically means that she assigns the animals a personality, and dresses them accordingly. She obviously has a sense of humour – the Tommy Cooper fez and glasses on the mole are glorious – and her work is strangely alluring.
What do you think of Julie’s taxidermy? Go on, don’t be shy, and comment below. The moles deserve an answer!
