The quality of taxidermy mounts as shown on Vita Nova's website and DeviantArt profile: http://nakomii.deviantart.com/ are not in any way the same quality of product she sends to her clients. Mounts have arrived with multiple holes in the skins, poor detail work in the facial anatomy, ears loose and out of place, etc. She only shows "good" mounts in her web presence but sends clients a very different and poor quality product. In some instances, she has taken well over a year to even get started on a client's mount, and again the finished piece is in terrible shape. This has happened to over 20 of her clients that I have spoken with, and Marissa refuses to give refunds or compensate in any way besides "replacing" or "remounting" the animal. But her replacements or remounts are just as bad quality so this does not solve the problem. There is no way to reason with her on this and she becomes rude and defensive when clients complain.
Also, Marissa has been reported to NY Fish & Wildlife for selling state-prohibited wildlife skins such as wolf and kangaroo. Any "professional" taxidermist should know their state laws, but Marissa Hernandez has been anything but professional. This is a business to stay away from!
