In 2013 I found that I really enjoyed making simple teddy bears. But as time went on I found that I wanted to make something more unique and artistic.
I started to research and learn more about creating patterns and using fabrics. I also had a lot of experience with needle-felting from a past hobby and was thinking on a way to combine this with my new found hobby.
I discovered that I could make faces, snouts and expression using this combination of techniques and focused on refining that. I started posting some of my creations on facebook and got a lot of positive reactions from people. They made me aware of a few sites where I should try and put my creations up for adoption.
This became an instant success for me and really drove me to go further and further. It became a big passion and as I keep a picture of all my creations I can see how my techniques evolve and become better. In early 2015 I started my own company called Lies & Lot Art Bears.
