Bears From The Meadows

Contact the Artist

Blessed with a mother and grandmother who loved to create, it wasn't long before needle and thread found their way into my hands...

I have dabbled in almost every craft imaginable, but in the early 90's when I was introduced to the world of the artist bear, I became hooked -- and have been designing, creating, selling and teaching all things beary ever since...

It is such a big part of my life, and I am thoroughly enjoying every second of it... I love colour, detail, am a perfectionist and all of this is reflected in my work...

Hope you love what you see💜

Birdie, the baby bluebird, sits in her little twig nest, lined with velvet leaves, pink forget-me-nots and lots of sparkle. She is quite happy to share her home with Angel, because after all that's what friends are for!!!

pink and white twisted alpaca, English black eyes, ultra suede footpads, embroidered nose, polyester and pellet filling.

She is 5-way wobble jointed for ease of pose-ability and has been delicately and meticulously shaded and sparkled. She also has fluffy white feather wings which are attached with gold cord, velvet flowers on her forehead and a gold heart charm which reads "Made with Love"

I hope you love her, just as much as I did creating her...

Clementyne

by Bears From The Meadows

Size: 35 cms/14 inches


Price: $ 220.00
(Australian Dollars)

This show has ended but the item may still be available. Please contact the artist for more information.

I have been having so much fun creating these little golly girls. Each one is unique and has so much personality. Designed as shelf-sitters, they do not stand, but are very posable.

Meet Clementyne who is made from a combination of black viscose, ultra leather, and long pile plush. Her face has been painstakingly handpainted. She is 3-way jointed (arms and neck) and is filled with polyester and pellets.

Clementyne's wardrobe has been designed and made by myself. Her dress skirt from a piece of printed cotton fabric that I have had in my stash for at least 16 years -- antique roses in hues of blues, mauves and ochre. Her dress bodice and pantaloons are made from cotton/linen which has been hand-tinted to match the colours of the dress skirt and a little rose has been embroidered on her bodice. Brown lace up boots and a blue forget-me-not on her forehead complete this little girl.

I hope you love Clementyne just as much as I did creating her...

Paris Rose

by Bears From The Meadows

Size: 43 cms/17 inches


Price: $ 495.00
(Australian Dollars)

This show has ended but the item may still be available. Please contact the artist for more information.

Paris Rose has been entirely designed and made by myself and represents a real labour of love... She has been made using only the finest ingredients -- Felted mohair, cashmere paws and footpads, wooden joints, glass eyes, embroidered and sparkled nose, polyester and glass pellet stuffing.

Hours upon hours have gone into the embellishing stage, so much so that the tips of my fingers were
red raw for weeks. Some thirty or so gorgeous lace flowers and leaves were hand appliquéd directly onto her filled body each one with its own diamante centre. She was fitted with a sparkly tulle tutu and a headpiece made from tulle and a velvet vintage style flower (which exactly matches the flowers on her body)

To finish off she was delicately shaded using a combination of pastels, copics, and more sparkles!!!

For me, this project has been very rewarding and I hope you love Paris Rose just as much as I did creating her...

(Australian Dollars)

This show has ended but the item may still be available. Please contact the artist for more information.

When I laid eyes on the most beautiful piece of dusty pink limited edition alpaca -- I was in LOVE and Cherub started playing inside my head... From the design stage, to the creating stage, she is now alive in the fur and out in the real world. The photos don't do her justice...

Cherub a gorgeous little lady (or not so little) -- she does have a huge tummy !!! Is made from short pile dusty pink alpaca, cashmere paws & footpads, English black glass eyes, embroidered nose and is 5-way jointed. She is filled with polyester and glass pellets to give her a nice weighty feel...

Cherub is wearing quite a bit of make-up, which has been delicately and meticulously applied -- her paws and footpads have been shaded using three different shades of pink/mauve pigment and hand blended together, her eyes, nose and mouth have been darkened to create depth and expression, whilst a pink/gold medium has been applied directly to her embroidered nose to create a finish which perfectly matches the shimmering ribbon, flowers and berries on her head.

Tied to her chest with a piece of silk ribbon is a handmade brass and resin pendant which incorporates all of the rich pinks, plums, mauve and gold tonings that embody this creation.

I hope you love Cherub just as much as I did creating her...
