I have been making bears since about 2001 I think and they have changed enormously since the early days. Although I don't collect many other artist bears I absolutely love old bears. I like making my bears to look old and scruffy. In the last year I have been making more and more dog with a few other animals thrown in including Giraffes which are one of my favourites.
I live with my husband and have 2 gorgeous daughters who are 23 and 25. Anna is a Teacher and Amy is also teaching in Sicily
Forgot to say that the red bear I put up yesterday sold!! I have dyed some mohair a lovely yukky greeny blue and might do another odd eyed bear, there is something rather appealing about bears that are old and well loved!
