Fiona Wells has been making bears since 1995 and now lives in Southampton. She is originally from Conwy in North Wales and not surprisingly, her favourite place for a holiday is to go back to her home town of Conwy. She is married and has two children. Fiona's workshop is her conservatory which is overflowing with fabric, and this gives her the inspiration for finding the perfect fabric to compliment her bears; she also enjoys cooking, quilting, appliqué and dressmaking. She has won several awards including two Firsts in the British Bear Artist Awards and a First in the National Artist Bear Awards.
