My names is Julie, I'm married with two grown up children, two beautiful grandsons and three rather loopy dogs, I'm from the UK and have been painting/sculpting etc regularly for the past 15 years, although my interest in art started as a child .... I am really new to bear making, I did make a few bears as a teenager but things have certainly moved on a lot since then .... I also made reborns for a short time, a couple of years ago but after trying everything still found that the whole process affected my health ... it was my husband who was going to have a go at making a bear so he started researching kits etc and that was when I realised what amazing artist bears were out there and I think from then I've been hooked, finding out as much info as possible to get started and also lucky enough to come across this wonderful website where I am looking forward to meeting everyone!
