Jane's love of bears evolved into a love of creating in 1997 when she visited a local teddy bear shop and bought her first artist bear and teddy bear magazine. She was soon visiting local shows, buying fabrics and patterns which she played around with. By the end of 1998 she was selling bears made to her own designs and patterns back to the shop where she had bought her first bear. Much time and love goes into the creation of each little character whether it be one of her miniatures or a larger bear. All are created by her own hand using only the finest quality fabrics and components.
