I began creating bears In 1999, without any artistic background. My inspiration was a greeting card I received that year that told me, “Teddy bears d
ry tears and give comfort and tenderness to everyone who needs them”. From that moment on I was hooked and this became my slogan for creating bears and bear friends.
I really had no clue about where and how to find supplies or how to start anyway - but the worst thing was: I didn't know how to sew!!! But as always in my life I could count on my mum. She gave me encouragement, moral, practical and material help and to honour her I decided to call my creations BOBBYBAER .... as my mum's nickname is Bobby.
From the beginning up to now I learned by doing and humbly can say that I made some huge leaps forward.
All BOBBYBAER creations are designed and hand sewn by my own as OOAK.
