Next up on our meet the makers series we have Bethan of MorgiMorgi.
Can you tell us a little about what you do?
“Bethan Mai’s illustrations of enchanting creatures and inspiring humans are a curious mix of sweetness and darkness”
I’m a freelance, Welsh language, up and coming illustrator newly establishing myself in the arts world! I sell framed and unframed prints, cards and Ethical (Fair Wear, Low Carbon, Organic) T shirts of my drawings.
How did you get started?
I have always drawn things and I want to spend more time drawing things so I set up a shop and people bought things 🙂 I am a musician and an actress when not drawing so I can take my sketch pad with me whenever I’m on tour.
Where are you from?
I am from Pontiets in Carmarthenshire. I like Cardiff because of its exciting, creative arty things and it’s a green city with the sea close by. I came here because it’s Welsh and wonderful.
What’s your favourite part of what you do?
Drawing whilst listening to music.
What’s your favourite item to make?
This one, “Cryf Fel
Llew” (Welsh for Strong Like Lion) is the lion-mother and the starting point to a whole collection
What inspires you?
Strong Women, nature and animals
What was your proudest moment?
Seeing my beautiful little dog (Myfi Mwg) dancing
If you could pass any law what would it be?
No nastiness to animals and their habitats, ever!
If you won a million pounds what would you do?
Charity, Crisps, and a nice Nest.
