Artist's Bio - Pam Pontious of Pamda Bears

WELCOME! My name is Pam Pontious. I live with my husband and two crazy cats in the beautiful Pacific Northwest corner of the United States. I have been designing and making bears and other strange critters professionally for 30 years.

My characters include bears, chickens, rabbits, fantasy birds and mammals, rats, mice, lions, cats, pandas. Through my artistry I attempt to make people smile. Hence, my critters don’t take themselves too seriously. There is always room for laughter.
