I started on the addictive road of bear making back in 1997 and I was influenced by some of the sculpted bears in my collection and a teddybear magazine I had found in a store. At the time I was looking for something different. No practice runs for me straight in at the top with a pattern and a pieceof mohair! With lots of misses and a few hits I progressed ontocreating my own designs.
I am my own worse critic which sometimes gets me in to trouble with the bears, nevertheless, many of my creations have found their way around the world to many happy owners. Very close attention and care is paid to all my hand sewing and finishing of the bears and also any accessories which I may use. All of the mohair is hand dyed and antiqued to achieve the out of the attic, much loved and care worn vintage style look.
