Wendy Ann Gardner, founder of SCARY STORIES INC., loves dogs, cats, chickens and pets of all kind. One day she met a French Bulldog which inspired her to create the Vicious French Bulldog plush toy and the Naughty Naughty Pets were born.
An artist originally from Toronto, Canada, Wendy began her career as a painter. She studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design and moved to New York City to work as an illustrator.
But soon, she fell in love with a Pug named Ivan and in 1997 she formed her company, SCARY STORIES INC. and began selling Dig Ivan Dig and all the other characters in her line of unique plush toys, playfully scary with angry eyes and growling teeth. The toys are sold in boutiques, design stores, gifts shops, and museums throughout the world.
