Marnie Pantano bears, raising money with #TEAMEARTH to build the Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection sanctuary

Hello , my name is Marnie Pantano.
I majored in painting and illustration and I also studied design, ceramics and other creative subjects. I never grew up sewing but the passion for bear making propelled me to learn.
I have been making bears now for around 18 years and have been fortunate enough to become a multi award winning artist in Australia.
I also have been blessed to teach over the years some of the most wonderful people who have since become my dearest friends.
I spend a great deal of love and time creating my bears and the prices, sizes, detail and designs vary significantly.
I hope you find a place in your heart and home to adopt my little bundles of love.
Love and bear hugs, Marnie.



 28cm long excluding her hat and 46cm long including her hat.

She is made of quality alpaca fur.
Completely hand stitched.
Dacron and glass pellet filled for weight.
Glass eyes.
Hand made clay nose and hat.
Hand painted details.
Fringed trim came from my Nonna’s glory box bed spread.
Fully jointed.
Made with love.





has been named after one of the Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue & Protection Chimpanzee’s

I do not have a description as yet for her, but I am imagining much the same as Rudy



Marnie Pantano approached Jenny Desmond, saying she would like to help raise funds for them ~ now these AMAZING bears are winging their way to me from Australia. This is the THIRD donation making that journey for the fundraiser !!

These beautiful bears are all unique, all hand made & worth alot of money, SO I really cant put them in the raffle, instead have decided to go with a silent auction, please see

and give one of these lovely bears a new home
