Rhonda-Lynne Lanctôt has been lovingly making bears from her own designs since 1996. Her signature big noses and feet were developed the following year and can be seen in every pattern since. She makes bears from 7/8" that fit in a lipstick tube or a vial on a necklace, to bears as tall as 21". Although her bear-making slowed down to raise her 2 children it never stopped and now that they are teens she is back full force. Rhonda-Lynne has bears in many publications, 2 museums and in collections in more than 10 countries.
