I started designing and creating Edwardian inspired teddy bears 25 years ago. It started out of curiosity after I had failed to win a Steiff bear at an auction and after having spent several years designing wedding dresses. I decided I needed a new challenge.
I have never tired of my love to create traditional teddy bears and I am known for my large bears, a particular passion of mine. I like to use antique mohair and fabrics where possible to give my bears an air of authenticity. Over the years I have created in excess of 1000 bears some of whom have made their way into museums around the world and have featured in numerous international publications.
