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

I am going to Schaumburg, IL this Sunday for a show and then to the Philadelphia show in early May.  I am hosting a couple of seminars, one on how I choose costuming pieces etc for my bears.   I think that I might start a tutorial section on this blog - maybe show a few pieces in progress and take pics of the "putting it all together" process.   What do you think?

I think it would be wonderful to see a work-in-progress. I think I'd be even more impressed with your work than I am now.

I am taking pics this next few days. I am working on the Gallery piece for the Philly show, so I thought it would be fun to show the whole, convoluted process.
