In her 20's Charlotte had her mind set on fashion design but during a trip to Australia she met Wayne and life took a new path. During the 3 children growing up, Charlotte kept on designing and sewing as well as exploring woodwork and all kinds of crafts. In 2000 she discovered the world of arctophiles and transferred from selling calico dolls to collectable teddy bears. The next 8 years got very intense with Charlotte making many 100's of teddy bears and other critters, under the name Lottaz Bearz. She made a success of her bear artistry, won many awards and enthused collectors worldwide. In 2009 after having finished a 100 koalas, order for Abercrombie & Fitch, in the US, she decided to have break.
