Description: This bear was based on my love of Koi I found while living with a friend of mine in Maryland. Her Koi pond was one of pure delight and magic. Each Koi had a name and a specific personality. I just loved spending time with them, especially at feeding time.

About the Artist: I am new to the designing and making of the bears this year. I was so excited to do a bear I did three! A bit of an undertaking the first time but with the help of Christie Hicks I was able to pull it off. My grandfather was a watercolor artist and his paintings are hung in all of the family’s homes, he is where my artistic talent comes from. I am looking forward to next year and creating more bears!
