Artist Statement

Founded by Christine facella in 2007, Beetle & Flor is a Brooklyn based design studio that focuses on creating unique handmade items for the home. The North American Wildlife series grew out a love of the natural world, and dates back to the days when Christine worked as a freelance artist at the Museum of Natural History in NY, where she drew countless turtle skulls. Proceeds from B&F's products support design projects with artisans in disadvantaged communities.
