Teresa Ann Virginia Bayer
Tell us about your business.Teresa Ann Virginia has always been a fan of puppets (she is known to watch Muppet Christmas Carol year round and on repeat). As a theatre artist, Teresa constantly crafts creations to incorporate into her whimsical performance pieces, but it wasn’t until her Thesis project for her Masters of Fine Arts in Performance did this spunky little lady craft her first true-blue hand and rod puppet. And fell in deep, true, honest to goodness love with puppets. She wants to share this love with each and every one by collaborating with her customers to create puppets that will tickle their fancy. In the future, Teresa Ann Virginia hopes to find a full time puppet home at a Brooklyn craft market and collaborate with a fellow artist to create a touring puppet show for elementary and middle schools that teaches the little ones about the power of make believe.
