My name is Katie Rhodes - a 23 year old recent graduate from Manchester School of Art in the UK - I created my own small company Fred&Elsie shortly after graduating after deciding to create my own dream job! Fred&Elsie is named after my artistic great grandparents who were always a great inspiration and my great grandma Elsie lived to the wonderful 99 - not far off a letter from the Queen! My 'Party Bear' design is the face of Fred&Elsie and always a favourite among my fans. The design is originally drawn in a traditional dip pen with ink with a dash of watercolour paint for his hat. Really hope he makes you smile too - and get in touch if you love him too - we love hearing from people! www.fredandelsie.co.uk - or alternatively follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/fredandelsie.
Party Bear is part of the range for Fred&Elsie that I run - www.fredandelsie.co.uk and is the face for the company.
