TBAAF - Purchase Directly From International Bear and Doll Artists

About Me

Creating soft sculpture animals is a very rewarding art form.  I enjoy creating both large and miniature bears and friends. 

I have been involved in many different forms of art, one of which was drawing and painting animals.  From that it was a natural jump to creating realistic soft sculptures.  I started out with more traditional bears, but once I found the world of artist bears, I was hooked! 

I incorporate many things into my animals.  I use both recycled furs and faux furs as well as using mohair from time to time.  Most of my creations have relistic details such as open/close mouth and eyes, claws and teeth.  These details are very time consuming, but I love how they bring my creations to "life". 

I strive to make soft sculpture animals that are lovable and exciting to see.  I am supported in my art by a wonderful family (my husband, 3 children, Mom, Dad and my sister).  With the encouragement from them and all my wonderful collectors, I plan to keep working hard at making animals that can be considered works of art in themselves.

My creations are available either on ebay or directly from me.  To see what I have available on my web site, please visit http://www.melisas-bears.com.  ; To join my email list, please email me at [email protected]

I also try to list a creation on ebay regularly ... you are invited to visit my current auction by clicking here!

You are also invited to visit my Blog and my Facebook Fan Page.  I love to hear from collectors and other artists, so please feel free to send me a message :)
