Hi there! Im Helen Gleeson, Bear Artist, of Bare Cub Designs, Author of Bear Basics and Beyond, Editor of Bear Beautiful Magazine and now instructor right here!

I created Bare Cub Designs back in 2003 designing my custom cub from vintage recycled mink furs for a signature look and fluffy cheeks. Thousands of hours and many classes later, it's still my passion. I'd like to share with you how wonderful this past-time can make your life. Are you ready to join me?
