Award-winning miniature bear artist. Lovingly designed and hand-sewn miniatures by Jan. One to four inches. Commissions are taken.
I specialise in miniature and micro bears and the name came about really by accident. I was visiting a friend and took some bears to show her children my new found hobby. With lots of oohs and ahhs my friend exclaimed “aren’t they tiddy?” and so the Tiddy Bears were born.
Eventually, I found employment but didn’t stop the visits to my bestie or showing at the fairs. It’s been the most fun ever, as I’ve met so many amazing artists and collectors. I can’t see myself now without my hobby and thankfully I’ve got a Fiance who understands. He likes visiting the shows with me and says he’s my top salesperson, but I think he just likes chatting up the ladies!
Being accepted into Hugglets many years ago was a big turn around for me, and that’s when I started to expand into other critters rather than just bears. It’s sad that there’s no show for me to meet everyone, but excited to be attending my first ever online fair. I’ve been working hard to create new critters as well as produce some old favourites, so I hope you’ll love looking at my creations.
