Today’s featured artist is one of our shiny new signings…Mikki Butterley!  I can hear you all gasping with an intake of breath at the beautiful technique and gorgeous characters. Mikki joins us an experienced  greeting card illustrator, which is certainly obvious with her ability to turn her hand from cute animals to delicate botanical florals, you can see more work of this nature on her greeting card section of the site. But here at Advocate Art, never wanting to miss an opportunity we also see a blossoming future in children's book's, her natural storytelling of characters is apparent when you look at her cute card ranges, so keep up to date with her developments on her pages of the children's book website. Here's a little teaser of some of our favourite pieces and a few words from the lady of the moment: A Yorkshire lass who took up drawing at an early age. After several years at colleges in Bradford and Blackpool, I began a career in greetings cards which has kept me busy and out of trouble for the past 20 years-WOW-now I feel old! I have been lucky to have the opportunity to develop a wide range of styles and am as happy painting cutes as I am botanical illustration or more contemporary work. The discovery of Photoshop a couple of years ago was a revelation! Any spare time I have is spent trying to tire out my 4 year old, which is harder than it sounds.
