Leo would agree that bears are no joke. These magnificent animals are strong, scary and dangerous. Unless they are plush bears. Jessie Cunningham is the artist behind Past Your Porchlight. Inspired by the beautiful Canadian nature, she creates plush felted bears with tiny worlds on their backs. These bears, that she calls Forest Spirits, carry forests, flowers, mushrooms, houses and even other animals.
Felted Bears Carry Tiny Worlds
The artist tells that her goal is to bring something to life and evoke some of that same wonder she carries for the natural world and she encourages everyone to “don’t be afraid to dream a little bigger”.
