TBAAF - Purchase Directly From International Bear and Doll Artists

About Me


My name is Victoria & I am a self taught artist of more then 15 years.  I have won several awards and nominations for my "Bruin Beings" "Old Souls" & "Petite Bruin People." I create individually unique, OOAK bears from my tiny brown, wood, cabin, in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains, which I share with my much loved mother, 2 cats and beagle, Miss Molly.  There has not been a time in my life when I was not engaged in teaching myself something new or creating something new to occupy my imagination and need for artistic endeavors. My bears are simply a result of that imagination. I dress my bears mostly in vintage garments with vintage & antique accessories. Sometimes I have to create their garments from scratch and sometimes I might just run across that perfect something new.  My Bears range from my non-distressed  furry  "Bruin Beings" to my "Old Souls" & "Petite Bruin People" who are known for they style of being distressed, tattered & antiqued to nearly furless.  I also make the most difficult, for me anyway "Leather Bruins" as seen in my profile picture.  One is never fully created until I can see their much loved countenance come shining through. I use the finest quality materials in all my creations and I create them entirely myself from the first draft of a pattern to the trip to the departure depot when I send them off to their forever home. They are truely created with great care as I love them all myself. 

 I would be remiss If I did not send out a heartfelt thanks to the collectors who loved my earliest creations, as awkward as some of them were, had it not been for your generous encouragement, I could not have evolved into or become the artist I am today.  God Bless You All.

Bear Hugs & Blessings

Hi Rosarita,
Thanks again and how nice of you to mention that you visit my web site and remember the picture of my Dad and his bear. Perhaps I will bring it back. I have the original photo on my desk beside my computer. As soon as I can I will visit your site to see more of your bears. The little fellow in your picture is adorable. I have always wanted to visit Italy but since I can't, the next best thing is the travel channel on TV when they show Italy. A beautiful country. Talk to you again soon. Bear Hugs, Victoria

Greetings & Welcome Victoria! I loved reading about your creative life and seeing the gorgeous picture on your profile. I can't wait to see more of your teds. Seems we live in a similar type of area. I live in a two story brown house on 5 acres on a mt. in the Cascade Mountain range of Washinton State. I love nature along with teddies etc. I was lucky to live in Tennessee for a time and I must say, if I weren't living here.....I'd be living there. Hope to talk to you soon. Have a Wonderful Day.
Bear Hugs....Maggie
