CBCA Awards Foundaton Bears - introducing Mamie

Saturday, 25 May 2019


I was thrilled and honoured to be asked to create a bear for the CBCA Awards Foundation, which raises valued Book of the Year prize money for Australian children's book creators. Meet 'Mamie' - one of four bears that will be silent auctioned at this year's CBCA National Conference in Canberra. 


Mamie is an artist, nature lover and bush fairy queen - a dedication to the real life May Gibbs, of course! She comes with a stylish Bush Fairy Queen outfit - a pompom-trimmed blossom skirt, fuschia ballet slippers, a starry leotard and gently sparkling Boronia headdress. She is toting - what else, but a set of crocheted gum blossoms.


Alongside Mamie are these gorgeous creations by Dub Leffler, Matt Cosgrove and Laura Stitzel. You'll be able to bid on these bears at the Conference this weekend!
