Beautiful teddy bears created from mohair or luxurious faux fur by an award winning artist.
Hi, my name is Susan and I have been creating my bears since 2000. I love teddy bears and started creating my own after following a pattern to make my son a bear as a present. I then bought a book showing you how to start creating your own designs and from there the Scruffie Bears that you see now were born. I usually find inspiration from everyday life and when I see a new piece of mohair I just know what I will create with it. I am continually pursuing new ideas and always learning new techniques, which can be used with the bears. I am very passionate about creating teddy bears that will bring joy to collectors for many years to come.
I would describe my style as traditional with a twist. I love to give all my bears personality and I achieve that in their faces and especially their eyes. I love wild and wacky bears myself so you will see some unusual colours from time to time. My bears have found homes in over 15 countries all over the world and have been featured in many magazines. I have also won several awards over the years and my bears were even featured on a TV programme in Ukraine. I usually exhibit at Hugglets festivals twice a year where I have the chance to meet a lot of my collectors.
