About the Artist John Parsons

John Parsons

John Parsons grew up hunting the rolling farmlands of south-central Kansas. After a fall from a treestand resulting in three crushed vertebrae in his lower back, ending his career as a firefighter, John turned his taxidermy hobby into a successful business. Over two decades of taxidermy experience and a variety of international hunting adventures have translated well to the art of sculpture. The subtleties of animal movement and behavior John observed during experiences in the field are reflected in the detailed artwork he creates. John's love for wildlife and the outdoors has dictated the course of his life since he was a young child. His goal is to share that love of wild things with others. John's artistry is a testament to the connection we share with the natural world.
