Hello and thank you for visiting Pinkyminky. Let me tell you a bit about myself!
My name is Jane, and I live in South Manchester, England, in a Victorian terraced house, with my husband and three children. We have two black cats, some guinea pigs, and a house rabbit called Ronnie.
Originally trained with a Masters in Fine Art (Sculpture and Printmaking), I worked extensively in schools and National Galleries and Museums coordinating and delivering projects for school, college and family groups. After having 3 children I returned to my studio and to my first love which is making my doodles and sketches into physical creations.
I am very fortunate to have avid collectors of my toys in the Uk, and abroad..
I especially love the idea that my toys are best friends with a growing number of children all around the world and somewhere now any number of them could be enjoying a fabulous tea party (afternoon tea being another of my most favourite things) with cake and jam sandwiches and maybe a dash of fruit juice.
All of my toys are CE Marked, this being a legal requirement for selling toys within the EU. I am one of the founder members of the Sock Toy Association, which is a not for profit group set up to aid sock toy makers in CE Marking their toys.
