Biography:
 Hello,My name is Carla Smale. Welcome to my web site.I am an artist and a craftswoman with a special feeling for and love of animals of every kind.I love to capture the uniqueness of them all on paper as well as in form,such as artist teddy bears,needlefelted critters and anything else I decide to create.I have brought to life many teddy bears,leather frogs,dragons,wool dogs and many other creatures over the years. I love the challenge that each new idea gives me so it has been difficult to just pick one. First I was a painter,but life was so busy raising children and working full time that I put my pencils and brushes away for a few years.Any spare time I had went into learning the craft of teddy bear making. I have spent many years working in an art supply store in Victoria helping other artists with their materials and solving some of their creative problems. I discovered artist trading cards a couple of years and they brought me back to painting again. There is no looking back as I am completely hooked! I started with artist trading cards,they are small,2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches in size,not such a huge chunk of time is needed to complete one. I have been selling these little originals on Ebay for over awhile now. They have gone all over the world through the magic of the internet. Some of these wonderful people have asked me to do portraits of their special pets. I was hesitant at first but the experience has been very rewarding and my work has been well received. I recently decided to branch out and offer pet portraits as a regular item in trading card size and also in larger sizes.My portraits are very reasonable in price ranging from $30.00 for trading card size to $100.00 for a 9 x 12 single pet. I offer these portraits in my Ebay store-just follow the link. I am also still a craftsperson and my first love there is the most wonderful teddy bear. Nothing can calm a soul more than the love from a dog or the eyes of a teddy bear.I make my teddies out of recycled fur and leather. I make them with clay faces and you will see some examples of these on this web-site. I create these little character faces with polymer clay-they are all hand sculpted and completely one of a kind. They are set with glass eyes and loads of personality.I have also made heirloom bears for people from a loved ones fur coat. These have also been well received and quite often bring tears to the eyes.If you have a special pet that you want captured in coloured pencil or paint or if you would like a special bear,please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for taking the time to find out a little about me,Carla
