Jennie Sharman-Cox has been at the forefront of the British Bear Artist movement since 1990 when she started making under the name Mister Bear after a varied career in window dressing, fashion, ceramics and theatrical costume! From the outset, her distinctive style has been based on early Edwardian bears; long limbs, big feet and humped backs. Jennie loves using antique fabric and accessories, which help to give the bears a real feeling of history.
