My Childhood Bear.. And One Of The Bears She Went On To Inspire...


From a very early age I knew my career would have to involve the arts! I had been a painter and sculptor  before discovering bear making in 1993/4  but back then my bears were mainly traditional designs. After a break of some years to raise my family, bear making called me back once again...but this time around my interest has been for realistic animal designs. Each animal is one of a kind and although I often adapt previous patterns I never use the same one twice. Sometimes I prefer to cut the fabric as I go along and  find that the very best way to make progress.  I look upon my work now as sculpting with fabric and for me it is just the most wonderful job in the world!!!

Thank you for stopping by to meet the animals,.

Love, light and hugs Brigitte xx.
