Hi and welcome to my web page! I am the designer and creator of One-of-a-kind Fine Art Teddy Bears. My extensive extensive background in the entertainment field lends a distinct look to the teddy bear characters that I create.

My work has been featured in newspapers, on TV and in collectible magazines. I am thrilled to be featured in the recent issue of "Teddy Bear Times and Friends" magazine.


I have over 30 years of experience in costume and fashion design and construction for some of the world’s most famous Las Vegas shows. In the past, I spent 8 years as a Costume and Shoe Technician for Cirque du Soleil’s KA'. My background includes 14 years as the Lead Seamstress for the Siegfried & Roy Show and 6 years as the Costumier for Nevada Dance Theatre, Nevada Opera Theatre, the Mickey Finn Show and various Las Vegas productions.

Over 30 of my teddy bears have just returned from a 3 month exhibit here in Las Vegas which displayed my teddy bears exclusively.  Some teddies are currently on sale at Priscilla Fowler's Fine Art Gallery.

I was asked to create 2 of the Broadway Cares Bears. The bears represented the Broadway shows, Ain't Misbehavin' and Sugar Babies and were signed by Mickey Rooney, Ann Miller and Nel Carter. I have created boxer character dolls for Leon Spinks and Larry Holmes. One of my "Show Bears" honored Liberace and was shown in the Liberace Museum next to the famous Fabergé Egg costume that it represented.


“Join me in a world where the love of art is combined with the joy of the teddy bear.”

Roses from Wargemont by Auguste Renoir, 1885

Fine Art Print on Canvas Giclee Reproduction


Pierre-Auguste Renoir (25 February 1841 – 3 December 1919) was a French artist who was a leading painter in the development of the Impressionist style. Renoir's paintings are notable for their vibrant light and saturated color, most often focusing on people in intimate and candid compositions. As a celebrator of beauty and especially feminine sensuality, Renoir was inspired by the style and subject matter of previous modern painters Camille Pissarro and Édouard Manet.

Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh, 1888-1889
Fine Art Print on Canvas Giclee Reproduction
 

Van Gogh’ paintings of Sunflowers are among his most famous. He did them in Arles, in the south of France, in 1888 and 1889. Vincent painted a total of five large canvases with sunflowers in a vase, with three shades of yellow ‘and nothing else’. In this way, he demonstrated that it was possible to create an image with numerous variations of a single color, without any loss of eloquence.

The Head of the Virgin by Leonardo Da Vinci, 1510-1513
Fine Art Print on Canvas Giclee Reproduction

Leonardo da Vinci (15 April 1452 – 2 May 1519) was an Italian polymath of the High Renaissance who was active as a painter, draughtsman, engineer, scientist, theorist, sculptor and architect. Leonardo's genius epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal, and his collective works compose a contribution to later generations of artists matched only by that of his younger contemporary, Michelangelo.
