I'm Heidi, maker of Steiner Bears and beasties.
I've led an artful life since I was a little girl. My Dad built me my first workshop space, a place to call my own when I was a teenager. I remember it being a magical place to cut and paste, sew and paint and sprinkle sparkles to my hearts content.
Having dabbled in all things artsy, the path finally led me to the world of teddy bears.
My work is mostly one-of-a-kind and sometimes a few of a kind, featuring antique clothing, vintage trims and whimsical finds.
~2013~ celebrates my 28th year creating teddy bears and a menagerie of other beasties.
I am so happy to be doing what I love on a daily basis.
Thank you to my family, friends and you, the collector for encouraging me and loving my work.
I look forward to many more years of creating and sharing it with you.
