Dona has fourteen years’ experience as a teddy bear artist. She specializes in one-of-a-kind collectable teddy bears. No two finished bears are alike. She works in various fabric types to create unique bears and accessories such as heirloom dresses, collars, jewelry and hats for her bears. She primarily works in German Mohair, but has experience in recycled mink and other types of fur, such as rabbit and alpaca fur and pelts; plus she occasionally works with synthetics. She loves the challenge of creating bears that are difficult to make, and you will notice her tendency is to create bears that have sweet, innocent faces, and many with unique paw treatments.
