The Teddy Bear's Frolic
I am " Mamma" . . . to two teen sons - and my Husband!” From a cozy little village in mid-America . . .
My creations have their origins in my classical training in the visual arts. The teddy bears and “other lovables have been enhanced by my knowledge and experiences in various media such as painting, sculpture, print making and the textile arts. These works of art are soft – sculpted.
Each of the bears as well as all costumes and accessories that are included are literally handmade and hand
Stitched. The patterns are created from my own original sketches. I use a multitude of different types of fabric (some of which inspire the designs of the bears) from mohair to manmade fibers.
Each “frolicking” bear is fiber-filled and weighted with pellets for a well upholstered look and sculpted feel. They are jointed at the head and limbs for full motion.
Part of my style is to create bears that are multicultural and at time a bit rascally.
Bears need buddies too! . . . Rabbits, dogs, elephants, pandas, golliwogs (black rag dolls) even dinosaurs have been “brought to life” by my wizardry with a needle and thread.
Creations come in sizes ranging from 2 inches to over 24”.
If I can make you smile, reflect on the past, or feel loved, then my creations have done their job!
I have a sense of humor. . .sometimes a little bit wicked. How about you?!
