About me and the bears,

 

Embroid

 

I’ve always been an artist; I can’t imagine ever doing anything else. I began to draw and paint as soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil then through school, Foundation and my degree at Art College.
I have looked into so many ways of expressing my ideas.
Textiles, Graphic Design and Stained Glass have somehow come together to create my bears. Perhaps an unusual path but all these skills have helped. Also I can’t remember any courses on bear making being on offer?

I’ve been making my bears professionally for 7 years now and I still look forward to making every new bear. The ever-growing number of my adopted bears will hopefully reach the 1000th bear soon.

Every bear I make is different, and all are made exclusively by me. I’ve added so many techniques to creations including: Acrylic painting, embroidered designs and lettering, airbrushing and sculpting. And of course I’m always looking for new ideas and techniques to stretch my imagination.

I use many bear making techniques as I love to explore all the possibilities.

Art inspires me everyday perhaps through the
diversity and cultural influences. Just about
every nationality has help to mould my style.

What we are striving to achieve is a fantastic fictional world where the bears do their own thing, and we just watch, a sort of ‘teddy bear soap’ the ‘World of Comfortable Place’.

Hopefully others will enjoy the stories, illustrations and the endearing qualities of the bears themselves. They may be just fabric and thread but sometimes something about them seems to take on a life of it’s own.
