Who we are
Who is the face behind Envision 3D Studio?
With a distinct talent for art and an avid interest in wildlife, Dave took up the art of taxidermy at the age of 14. A naturalist at heart, Dave studied Wildlife and Fisheries Technology. Through a variety of nature-related jobs, became familiar with various aspects of his local Canadian flora and fauna and was also able to travel the world. Eventually moving to Victoria, British Columbia, Dave began Fisherman’s Tale Re-Creations in 1993, which specialized in fiberglass fish replicas. Boldly experimenting with various molding techniques, he was soon recognized as North America’s premier aquatic reproduction specialist. His intuitive ability to develop highly realistic models soon caught the attention of museums, interpretive and cultural centres across the continent. Over the years, Dave accrued new design skills and in 2010, he combined them with his previous techniques to head up his new company, Envision 3D Studio Inc. Dave’s models are now being used as educational tools and displays worldwide.
