moved had been revealed. I left the class with several yards of mohair fabric,
joints and eyes and lots of inspiration.

surrounded by Mother Nature's splendor. I have taken several workshops with
master bear artists to try and improve my own work. My bears have been featured
in Teddie's Own Journal, England's Teddy Bear Times, and the US magazine, Teddy

England. I am always working to create the special Teddy Bear that will steal
