A Little Bit About Me

 

Since 1985 I have been creating my award winning animals under the  Mill Creek Creations label. My creations are well known throughout the world for their fine workmanship and sweet expressions. My bears, dogs, cats and bunnies are lovingly created from my original designs of the finest imported materials with an added touch of whimsy!

 

I specialize in dogs and while I try to capture the realistic elements of each breed I want to be sure to capture the sweet innocence of puppydom with an element of make believe.

 

From 1990-2008 I was a featured artist at the Walt Disney World Teddy Bear and Doll Convention creating many limited editions and Auction Vignettes.  In 2005 I created special bears for the first ever Tokyo Disney Character Convention.

 

Many of my creations have been featured in books, magazines, greeting cards and calendars.

 

I was commissioned to design displays at four Teddy Bear Museums in Japan. My Bears can also be found on permanent display at the Korean Teddy Bear Museum.

In 1999 I was asked to design for the Barton’s Creek Collection made by Gund, Inc. which was introduced worldwide.

 

My husband Tom and I currently live and work in the beautiful rolling hills of Wisconsin, we have two grown daughters Emily and Lindsey and two cats named Molly Brown and Lilly.

 

I hope you will enjoy my creations and will gain an appreciation for this special art form that I am privileged to share with you.  I hope you enjoy my animals and I hope they make you smile!
