About Me

My photo
I am a teddy bear artist by profession. I also play rhythm guitar with a local bluegrass band on weekends that I am not off to teddy bear shows. I have a very funny papillon named PJ. He is 10 years old and he keeps me mobile by making me take him walking every day. I love antiquing and use many of my finds for my teddy bears. I am just starting to do mixed media artwork and collage. You can find some of my things my website:www.marthasbears.com

manic trunk show time

I am so excited, I got 3 new artists to send me some pieces for the trunk show!!!  Can't wait to take pictures.  It's been too gray and rainy here for the last week, but tomorrow looks to be better.  I will have a Snow Crow or 2 - kinda like this one, only mohair.

It's time for the Halloween Trick or Treat show

Hey - check my website for a link to the Trick or Treat show -- starts today.-- spooky fun.

Toby and the bears

I am getting ready for the Kansas City show - here is a pile of little souvenir bear bodies and my dog Toby who thinks that they are his.  Toby is doing much better, but he still has to have enforced rest.  Of course, PJ had to get in on it too..  What little hams!
