100% handmade custom plush animals and creatures! Made in Canada!

Hello there, Welcome to my Kindgom!
My name is Jessica and I am a Canadian Animal Artist based in BC, Canada.
Animals and art are my true passion. As an artist, I find satisfaction in the ability to bring animals and art into one entity by applying my skills of imagination and creativity. Whether the piece is a personal, shop or commissioned project, I make my best efforts to make it an original piece of work.

For the most part, I focus on stuffed animals, albeit is not the only subject that I create. I enjoy many different mediums, including acrylic and water-colour painting, digital painting and pixel art, sculpting... basically any art related media. Experimenting with new media is always a treat, helping me expand my skill set.

Every item that I create is 100% handmade by me (With exceptions of materials made elsewhere). From pattern to finished product. I do not use store bought patterns when creating my stuffed animals. Every pattern is drawn from scratch.
When creating my patterns, I reference from real life images to get the proportions of the animal that I am trying to achieve.

The materials of the plush depends on the creature project, but for the most part I work with quality faux furs.
Other materials of choice include (but not limited to) minky, vinyl and faux suede.
My plushies are stuffed with 100% polyester stuffing and/or plastic pellets(For beanie/floppy plushies).
By default, most of my plush have plastic safety eyes but when ordering a custom plushie, you have the option of plastic eyes or hand embroidered/appliqued eyes!
Some of my plush have pose-able ability. They contain a wire armature skeleton inside them, which allows them to move their limbs and head. These wire armatures are made of galvanized wire, twisted and wrapped together with electrial tape and hot glue for extra durability and strength.

Some of my plush also contain foam "bones" to create structure in their face or body. An example is the skunk to the right, inside it's head and feet is hand carved polyethylene foam to give it a more realistic shape and look. Then the fur was patterned and stretched over the foam to fit.

To create a more realistic look and colour to my plushies, I hand dye the fabrics using either spray paints, acrylic paints or fabric paints/markers. This technique gives the project a nice finish and a great look!
Some plush require more intricate and delicate markings and colour, this is where the applique technique comes into play to add these little details.

My plushies are pieces of art and are meant for collection, decoration, recollection etc.
Not recommended for small children. My work would be more suitable for older children and kids at heart!


I am open for custom orders! If you are interested in having a stuffed animal made to look like your pet or a creature that you have in mind, feel free to contact me by message through Etsy or send me an email : jessica.allanson [!at] hotmail.com
I work very quickly. My turnaround is 3-4 weeks.
