Thank you so much for visiting my page. I’m so excited to be taking part in my first Ebearshow. My creations have a bit of a Spring/Easter theme, out of season for here in Australia but I hope you enjoy regardless!:)
A little about me: I’ve been making bears and other friendly critters since the early 1990s, concentrating on small and miniature bears in recent years. I love to search out special fabrics and trims for each creation wherever I go. My creations have won the TOBY Industry’s Choice award several times, and appeared in magazines in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Germany and the UK, but the most rewarding thing for me is when a wonderful collector adds one of my pieces to their hug:)
