Are you a Doll or Teddy bear artist or maker?

Teddy Bear artist and raggedy ann & primitive dollmaker

If you are an artist or bear maker what type of bears do you design and make?

My bears are one-of-a-kind and mostly traditional in style, but I also create contemporary, primitive, "whimsical and sassy" teddy bears and companions in a variety of styles, sizes and colors. I also create raggedy ann and primitive cloth dolls.

How long have you made bears or dolls?

I have been creating bears since 1995 and began creating dolls in 2015.

Are you a Teddy Bear collector?

Yes

How many Teddy Bears does your hug hold?

20

What attracts you to a new Teddy Bear the most?

A bears face, especially the eyes are what attract me. The face has to speak to me.

Describe what your dream Teddy Bear would be and look like.

My dream teddy bear has always been a traditional style bear....one from days gone by.

Are you a Doll Collector?

yes

How many Dolls does your collection hold?

50

What attracts you to a new Doll the most?

I have collected designer Barbie dolls for my daughter since 1999. The beautiful clothing and lovely faces attracts me.

Describe what your dream Doll would be and look like.

My dream dolls are antique style baby dolls from the past.

Describe when and why you started to collect Dolls or Teddy Bears.

My love for teddy bears and dolls began in my childhood, but I began collecting dolls and bears after attending a local doll and bear show in 1995 after my daughter was born.  The wonderful work of artists captured my heart, and shortly thereafter I began creating my own bears.
