Mara Grishina

Most talented artist Mara Grishina lives in Moscow. She studied at the Technical University of Riga. From the moment she had seen a teddy bear exhibition she was smitten. Since her youth she was already fond of teddy bears but since the last couple of years she works as a teddy bear artist.
She loves vintage materials and she has a special eye for patterns and colour combinations. Her work always has a hint of humour.
Apart from bears she creates wonderful other animals.


Please note these bears are especially created for collectors and not suitable as a toy for children.
