Polly Morgan is a contemporary British artist known for her taxidermy sculptures. As a member of the UK Guild of Taxidermists, she only uses animals that have died naturally or accidentally in her work. 'I didn't want to sentimentalize nature,' Morgan said of her work. 'I wanted to show it as it is; cannibalistic, predatory and unnerving.' Born in Banbury, United Kingdom in 1980, she graduated from the University of London with an English literature degree, taking up taxidermy as a hobby. Her career accelerated when she was commissioned to create work for 'Santa's Ghetto', a show held in London curated by the artist Banksy. In 2011, her book Polly Morgan: Psychopomps was released. The artist lives and works in London, United Kingdom.
