I have been making collectable, hand-stitched teddy bears since 1999. I live in Queensland, with the Great Barrier Reef practically at my door. My bears are limited edition, one of a kind or custom made to order. I only use the best quality Mohair and Alpaca when making bears. My trademark bears are the "Bearonette Collection" of marionette bears which have 13 wobble joints, and the "Hand-stand Collection" of acrobatic bears. I also specialise in animated/musical hugs of bears. I love bears with GREAT character on their face, with BIG bellies and BIG feet! All of the "Bumble Bears Collection" come with their own hand-painted terracotta name tag, with date made, artists signature, and Edition Number or OOAK status on the back. I love any-thing with a difference.
I also have a small collection of Gunnies Bears along-side my own.
Having a busy life-style, and I find making bears relaxing and comforting. I am a perfectionist in many aspects of my life, bear-making one of them.
