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

a special project

I just finished a special order bear for a lady whose husband had passed. She sent me his favorite raincoat and asked me to make a bear out of it. I used the buttons down the front, part of the collar and the cuff tabs and here is how he turned out. I hope she loves him.
