Bear has lived in Trieste since 2005 and regularly spends time in nearby Slovenia. She finds inspiration in the great Dutch masters, in the Italian Renaissance, but also in the work of contemporary colleagues. In her acrylic paintings she portrays young girls whose facial expressions reflect the world that surrounds them. Her dreamy oeuvre is often attributed to the genre of Pop Surrealism.
