"She's made four bears on her own...well, maybe with a little help from Mo."
Jane loves to create and see her visions come to life.
"I have made many bears and critters using various mediums such as mohair, synthetic fur and sometimes real fur for memory-bears."
She finds it extraordinary to hear from clients about how much her bears mean to them; those bears made from fur coats of a loved one and the provenance the bear now has with the family.
"Some materials and furs are tricky to work with, but it is worth the effort in the end to witness the happiness their owners receive from them."
Jane sells her bears through different avenues; from online auction sites and online teddy bear shows as well as relying on reputation and word of mouth to propel sales.
"I think my favorite venue to get my bears out there is through the online shows. It gives me a connection with other artists and collectors worldwide."
Jane's own little part of the world is Redcliff, located in Alberta, Canada, where she works as a Finance Officer and Business Planner for the British Ministry of Defense when not making bears.
"I have worked there for 35 years and am retiring in December," she exclaimed, adding, "Then I'm going to have a lot more time to create bears and ride my Harley!"
You'd better believe that teddy bears will come along for the ride.
