Are you a Doll or Teddy bear artist or maker?

Teddy Bear Artist

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

I love to design my bears and pandas to give them lots of character and appeal - they all have very soulful faces and I spend a great deal of time hand-painting their custom glass eyes.  I love attention to detail, and have introduced costuming to my bears - from very simple and stylish to quite intricate and themed.

How long have you made bears or dolls?

Since 2007

Are you a Teddy Bear collector?


How many Teddy Bears does your hug hold?

Not as many as I'd like!

What attracts you to a new Teddy Bear the most?


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

I have a vision that one day I will make the most sensationally white polar bear with deep, soulful eyes which look right into your heart and command to be loved!   No fancy adornments - just breathtakingly simple and beautiful.

Are you a Doll Collector?

Not yet

How many Dolls does your collection hold?


What attracts you to a new Doll the most?

The eyes and serene face.

Describe what your dream Doll would be and look like.

I just love Asian ball jointed dolls - serene and innocent!

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

I have collected artist teddy bears for a number of years now, first starting out with 'swaps' with other bear artists,  and now with a few purchases of my own.
