About the artist of Muppie's Bears

Muppie's Bears is from Gerda Kwaspen de Vries.
She was born in IJlst (Fr) and lives in Veldhoven (Br), the Netherlands.
As a child, she was devoted with heart and soul to bears, her favorite toy. Now she has been making them herself for years!
And she is still completely devoted to it. Each bear gets a piece of its own heart .... and that is clearly visible and tangible when you hold one of MUPPIE's BEARS.
Since 2016 Muppie's Bears has been expanded with a beautiful clothing line 'A BearsWear', as a reminder of mother Aafke who - while she was still with us - happily contributed with crocheted clothing and her spontaneous presence at fairs.
The creative hours are shared with husband Hans, who takes care of the photography and design of this website.
Dog Mila often diligently helps her way!
