About the Artist

Hello there, I’m Brittany Zerkle, the owner and creative force behind BeeZeeArt. It has always been a dream of mine to support myself with my artistic abilities. In April 2012 I discovered online selling and the tools I needed to share my quirky stuffed creations with the world.

In 2014 I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kendall College of Art and Design and chose to pursue plush making full time. Since then my studio has grown by leaps and bounds and my work can be found in every U.S. state and over 40 countries worldwide.

My inspiration comes from my own love of animals, anime and gaming culture, and the knowledge that something as simple as a stuffed animal can change someone’s life. I try to find that perfect balance in my work that is cute, yet quirky, and even a little nerdy. I'm excited to see where this artistic adventure takes me!
