ck karin at work

 When I made my first toy, a horse, when I was a child I was hooked. Before long I had made an entire herd of felt horses!
I arrived at bear making via Art College and various creative jobs, including professional photography, flower arranging, hand sewing for Lucienna Day a designer and repairing antique clothes for a shop in Chelsea. I worked as a motorcycle instructor for many years, then became an examiner for several more. I currently own a Harley Davidson motorcycle.

I have been professionally creating collectors Teddy Bears since I won the Newcomer Category of The British Bear Artist Awards in 1998. I work as an interior and garden designer when requested, but mostly I like to work on my passion, my bears. I now have more time to dedicate to Conradi Creations so the future looks exciting. I can now spend more time designing patterns, making more bears, and much to my delight, visiting antique markets, so I can find wonderful fabrics, jewellery, lace, many of which are vintage or antique with which to accessorise my bears
I hope you have enjoyed visiting my bears.
