Artist Feature: Jeannine Rundle Oct 08 2013

Meet the artists

Today's feature comes from the ultra-speedy, super talented, versatile hand of Jeannine Rundle. Jeannine has been with Advocate Art for five years and has an extraordinary showcase of work spanning the industries from Greetings Cards, Gifting, licensing and Fine Art. Jeannine's delightful working ethic and innovative eye for design has meant Jeannine has an offering of over 1800 designs in her portfolio alone, a little snippet of what she has to offer below and an insight into the lady herself:

I have always had a passion for art and good design. I started my career working for a clothing company designing babywear for the likes of Disney Store and Mothercare. It gave me a good insight into what was instantly eye catching and commercial and I became very proficient in working with computer design programs. After my children were born I decided to try my hand at freelance work because it gave me the felxibility to keep designing and being a full time mum.  I built up a portfolio of greeting card work and relaunched myself as a greeting card artist! I have worked for various publishers and have been lucky enough to see my creations on the High Street with various chains. Being signed with Advocate has enabled me to reach a global market and has released me from the sales side of my work. I am lucky enough to live in deepest Devon in an old thatched farmhouse with 20 acres of rolling land. Both my children are now at university but I have a horse, 3 dogs, 3 alpacas and some sheep to keep me company... and a husband too!
