Hello everyone. I was hoping to get some advice on the best websites or forums to showcase the artwork my mother does. The artwork is custom commissioned wildlife etching on bone (skulls) and antlers. Her work is unreal (of course I am biased) but I would love for her to gain some recognition and possibly commissions.

I finished a website for her and it can be viewed here .  www.ilynnsstudio.com

Thanks in advance for any comments or advice.

The skulls are really gorgeous! I don't have any advice on the website part. I think having your own website is the best. And maybe advertise in some magazines?

One of the best ways to post your work for free these days is on etsy.com.  It's one of the most popular websites to post any work you're selling and your work will get tons of views.  The website itself is how I got to see taxidermy as art in a different kind of light.  It's worth the try.

And I don't think your opinion is just bias.  This work is absolutely astounding.  Starting off an artist and only entering the taxidermy world now, I know how much time, skill and true talent, not to mention patience, is needed to do detailed work as such even with pen and paper.  Truly amazing, thanks for sharing!
