The Artists Series {and international giveaway} - Fritha Moonbeatle Tigerlilly Strickland




Happy 1st of February, Friends!

It's time to meet our second Artist of the year. Fritha Strickland has created this months header using her iconic drawing style and favourite animal, the Fox.

I'm so thrilled to have this fabulous lady on board. Not only does she have the most amazing name in the history of the universe, she also has bucket loads of talent.

I'll let Fritha introduce herself.


My full name is Fritha Moonbeatle Tigerlilly Quinn Strickland...but you can call me Fritha. Clearly my parents were the straight laced conservative type. I am a 27 year old mumma to Wilfryd Cadno and freelance artist living in Bristol, UK with my boyfriend Tom and our two fat cats. 

I am a great believer that what you are happiest doing at 5 is probably what you are happiest doing your whole life, for me it was and always will be drawing. 

Any parent will tell you the first year of becoming a parent is intense! That being so my artwork has taken a back seat whilst I have settled into this new and amazing role but slowly I am getting back into my creative passions also. Previous to having a kiddo my work had been featured in nationwide magazines such as The Metro and Company, I also designed Paperchase's 2012 Valentines range (not boasting or nothing ;)) 

I am a lover of wildlife and nature, I have a thing for foxes, so much that my son's middle name Cadno is that Welsh for Fox. I also love photography, writing and reading beautiful blogs such as The Beetle Shack! 

I love the blogging community, the snapshots into people's lives and the friendships that can be made.

You can read my blog here, and see my Etsy shop here. I am also on TwitterFacebook and Instagram, say hi, I would love to meet you! xo
