My love of bears started very early with my love for a chad valley panda

 i loved him so much eventually he was only an ear and a few threads, he was later replaced with a new bear who i named Paddington and is still my life long best friend


With an interest in many crafts i eventually bought a bear making kit, after a few disasters I started drawing my own patterns and the rest is history.

Now I not only design and make artist bears, I repair vintage bears and trade collectable bears


All bears are designed and handmade by me using traditional methods, which includes hand blown glass eyes and cotter pin joints. All my bears are made using mohair usually from schulte and helmbold.
