Jennifer Murphy Bears and Other Silly Things by Jennifer Murphy
Jennifer's unique style and vision was shaped by her childhood spent sewing and hunting for antiques with her creative family. At 11 she began creating jointed animals with her mother, renowned teddy bear artist Pat Murphy. After graduating from Minneapolis College of Art, she launched her website filled with teddy bears, animals, and "other silly things". Inspired by a unique combination of vintage illustration, Japanese cute, and all things old "with a story to tell" Jennifer continues to develop her line of quirky and endearing pieces. She has been featured on the Martha Stewart Show and in numerous national magazines. In 2006 she began licensing her designs with Midwest of Cannon Falls while continuing to create her original pieces for collectors worldwide.
