About the Artist, Zachary Shimkus (Currently not accepting work. Please contact Marty Shimkus at or call 815-744-1380 for assistance)

Zach of course learned all about Fish Taxidermy working under the guidance of his father. Today, Zach is a certified Fish Specialties Replica Artist and enjoys turning a white canvas into something special for his clients. Zach will be pursuing his career in his field of Media and Graphic Arts, however he enjoys working on fish replicas and plans on continuing with fish on a limited basis, taking on only 25-30 clients a year. Zach likes to keep his turnaround times down and usually stops accepting work by the beginning of Fall.
