    Your books and paintings are so gorgeous and inspiring. I have been reading as many of your books as I can to my daughter and we love them! And I have been re-reading them by myself because of how much I love them. 🙂
    Thanks for your amazing work.

      Dear Jackie. Your paintings are such a joy to me and my children. For a long time I’ve loved the idea of having a tattoo based on one of your beautiful bear paintings (particularly the one with the bear and the bowl of red fruits which really resonates somewhere in my soul)
      I my boyfriend secretly started a tattoo fund for my thirtieth birthday and I’ve been searching for inspiration, for a tattoo, something significant to my age… and to do with the natural world. just came across our website and saw you’d been painting bears for 30 years. Would you mind if I found a way to base it on your work?

    I want a dinner and breakfast and teatime service with all your different pictures on them, so I can start the day in a good mood….. now that would be magical!

    I have found you, or actually your astonishing work by a coincidence. Some charity shop, some shelve with the children books. Now, my daughter, my husband and I are all in love with your art. Our collection is growing and we have decided to buy more of your books to create little wall pictures for our little one. Thank you!
