I started with collecting dolls from Philip Heath and Anette Himstedt, almost 20 years ago. On the shows i saw also those lovely bears... and i was started to collect them to. In 2005, I started designing my own bears. My bears are made from mohair and/or alpaca and most of them feature sculptured and shaded faces and paw pads. I love to make some distressed and vintage looked bears, but also elephants, rabbits,...i love to make.
