Janeen Bath's Profile

About

My name is Janeen Bath, I am an artist of many interests, along with my husband Charles, we started Elementree Studio in the late 1980's. Our initial intent was to create high quality collectibles and children's gifts. While designing a children's room, we decided to construct a traditional Teddy Bear using faux fur.

During the late 1990's to current, our personal lives have been blessed with the marriage of our 2 daughters and the addition of seven grandchildren. While public Elementree Studio activity hibernated, we continued our craft personally. The encouragement of friends, family, and past collectors have embraced the desire to once again offer publically, our collectible creatures and children's gifts.

True to our original beginning, each Elementree Studio creation embodies the essence of innocence and purity. These elements of simple qualities create calm pause in a fast paced and complex world.

We confess...."Everything is Elementary when God is in your life"
