Charity Bears from Marjolein Voss (Mick Bears)

Marjolein Voss (Mick Bears) a Wonderful Lady

 
The Doll and Teddy Bear Sale at Vectis contains a section of very special artist bears and dog which are being sold in aid of Cancer Research UK.
 
The artist who created them was Marjolein Voss of Mick Bears.   She began making bruins in 1994 as an addition to her doll creations, often wearing intricate and stunning Himstedt designed clothing.
 
So much affection was shown to the teds that Marjolein launched a range of bears and dogs in quality mohair. She described these as her 'bear children' dressing then in her own design clothing and weighted them heavily to create an illusion of movement.  They had their own character fragile, sweet, naughty or tough and were guaranteed to melt your heart.  
 
Sadly Marjolein passed away last year at the age of only 61 after a long struggle with cancer. Her warmth and personality is much missed by collectors and contemporaries. There will never be another like her.
