    Michelle from Beauséjour Art

          1. Let us know a bit about yourself. By day I work behind the scenes of an online store for a major cellphone service provider. My days mostly consist of analysing people’s credit and preventing fraud (I like to think this could be my superpower!). When I’m not in the office I am usually enjoying the quiet nature of my riverside Montréal home. I also enjoy cooking, crafting and playing with my two ferrets Skittle and Belette. 2. What do you make? I like to dabble in a bit of everything. I could not say I make just one product, but yet multiple products for different aspects…

She taught me the fine art of making a Teddy Bear, and later on, the Elephants and Birds. It’s taken a number of years to get to where I am now, but it was well worth it. Last summer, I decided to bring BuxtonBears; the idea, into the reality of a website, which is going through a major overhaul at the moment, and to make it more user friendly.
