Jutta Michels



My father was an amateur painter and I learned from him when I was a child. My favourite themes were animals and when I was grown up I got an education in comic drawing. My mother was a dressmaker and from her, I learned sewing.

In 1996 I heard about a workshop “Teddy bear making” in our community college and participated. There I got the “virus” and it was the start of my career, as it combined sewing and drawing. Soon I turned from bears and hares in the first time to other animals. Over the years, my creations got smaller and now I mostly make miniatures. I like to create little scenes with more than one animal, but also single ones with suitable accessories.

The Hugglets Online Festival is the first online show I participate in and I am proud to be a part of it. I am looking forward to this event
