As self taught artist I have been creating and designing bears and other critters for over 30 years. I started designing and creating at a young age. My work has been features in all of the various Teddy Bear magazines over my career. Some of my work was even featured at Edmonton city hall in the 90's.
I work mainly with mohair and alpaca, high quality synthetics. Glass eyes, quality artists paints. Wool, misc fibers, antique fabrics, hand made and vintage eyes. All things here and made and designed by me for the adult collector. These works of art are not toys.
My inspiration comes from many places. Animals, nature and even sometimes the macabre. I love to be inspired by a piece of vintage fabric and I have a giant collection of eyes. I have over 1000 pairs of eyes in my stash and keep making more. You will be seeing some of them very soon!
