Fritha Land is an artist and illustrator. Her influences are the Rudolf Steiner community where Fritha lived as a child, her grandmother's house and rambling garden in the Scottish Borders and the Edinburgh Festival where Fritha spent most summers as a teenager busking with her saxophone and running around with circus performers. She is also inspired by Pollocks Toy Museum, where she has spent a lot of time and organised various events, and Shoreditch circa 2003 - the era of the Mighty Boosh when she was living in a flat off Brick Lane. Fritha studied for her Masters at Central St. Martins in Communication Design (Illustration).
