Lynn Bowie is Mad About Bears!  Lynn has been creating bears for over 15 years, her passion has taken her as far afield as America.  Lynn travels to her Craft Town Scotland Studio in West Kilbride from her home in  a nearby small town, which she shares with her partner, their two sons and several Persian cats.

"I was over the moon to have been invited to exhibit in New York State in 2013 at the Teddy BearLynn Bowie, Mad About Bears, Studio 4 Happyhills, Main Street, West Kilbride, Craft Town Scotland. Artist Invitational, Binghampton. I was over the moon and round the other side to have had a sell-out show and meet many lovely, lovely people."

Lynn makes cotterpin jointed and poly/shot ball filled bears using luxury fabrics like Schulte Alpaca and Mohair.  These are then scissor sculpted and gently hand shaded to create beautifully crafted, collectable bears to cherish.
