Andrea Huntley-Sawinski, freeze-dry extraordinaire
My name is Andrea Huntley-Sawinski, and I am a freeze-dry artist. My family has been freeze drying since the 1990s, and I operate four North Star machines in Newaygo, Michigan. I have been freeze drying in a professional capacity since 2012.
I am a state-licensed & federally-licensed taxidermist and a member of: Michigan Taxidermist Association, Pennsylvania Taxidermy Association, National Taxidermists Association, United Taxidermist Association, and United Deer Farmers of Michigan.
My passion is the art of freeze drying. I am advancing this form of taxidermy through the quality of work I produce and the open manner in which I share information about the freeze dry process. Educating others about this unique form of taxidermy is important, and my goal is for freeze drying to be recognized as a legitimate and widely-utilized form of taxidermy.
