The bear character is very special to me. 'He' and 'She' were first produced when I was a teenager; I was often doodling these bear characters and they haven't changed much in style! After my first born I created a large mural on one wall of a teddy bears picnic featuring these beloved bears. In 2010 this brown bear was first hand painted as part of the 'Woodland' collection for my second nursery design. The original design was then reproduced as a fine art print and greeting cards. The bears on the greeting cards are often different to depict the mother, father and baby bears, each time a bear is produced as a new hand painted canvas it will be naturally painted slightly different so these are often reproduced again onto the greeting cards.
