Soft Sculpture Animals and Whimsical Bears...

I have always loved crafts and stitching and grew up with many great influences, my Mother has always been a professional artist craftworker, making fantasy sculptures from clay and my Father is very artistic with a great photography flair. They have always encouraged me and I am very lucky to work at my Bears and Soft Sculpture animals full time, selling on the internet and also in our craft unit.

I try to give my bears and animals dear little appealing faces, my first dog Hettie was affectionately called Fluffy Bear and she continues to inspire me even though she passed away in 2011. My first Golden Retriever Corryn had wonderful big brown 'bear eyes' and is greatly missed. Love, support and daily adventures are provided by my two real 'Bears' Erynn the Goldie and Phoebe the bearded Collie x Border Collie. Every day we walk for two hours in the Sussex Countryside - whatever the weather! I love the Sea and its many moods and many of my bears are themed on the colours and essence of nature.

My work is fairly varied, I love to make realistic rabbit soft sculptures and run a small rabbit sanctuary caring for unwell or difficult to rehome rabbits that need some extra care and attention. I have started creating a lot of Soft Sculpture Dogs which are proving popular and I hope work more on those in the future. As well as the animals I make traditional mohair bears and even some quirky critters like owls and brightly coloured bunnies.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please do contact me if you would like anything special made. The One of a Kind nature of all of my work makes them very special heirloom gifts.
