About

Hedgehogs, squirrels, raccoons, bears & more

I am Katya Cherepkova - the designer-maker behind KittyApril handmade. I love creating cute mini teddy bears & their friends and I adore the whole creative process from sketching to taking photos of newborn creations. I have been a teddy bear artist since 2011.

Background
I grew up and live in Perm, a city far away from both ends of Russia, almost in the middle of it where Asia and Europe come together. Where it is -30 C in winter and everything is covered with snow. Where it is +30 C in summer and there`s a wide cold river Kama going through the city.

My inspiration comes from animals and nature. I really love walking in the forest, feeding squirrels and observing them jump around. I am happy to live in a place which is quite close to real nature - it takes about half an hour to find yourself in the woods or at the bank of some river.

I am a foreign language teacher by profession. I have been teaching English and French for several years after graduation. Now I am having a little break as I devote all the time to the baby & my teddy animals.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Every creation I ship is gift-wrapped. I enjoy gift wrapping and packaging very much and I am happy to do it for you.

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I accept custom orders and can add personalized features to my creations, for example, embroidery on the tummy, certain accessories or a special note to the receiver.

Care instructions

Mind that you cannot wash collectible artist creations in water due to the joints which are inside of them. Tidy the creations using a wet brush.
