Meet the artists

And yet another amazing talent signed by Advocate, Fiona Osbaldstone! She's particularly talented at capturing the beauty of the natural world, which is why she'd be great for posters and prints, art for products, and older and realistic styles. If you'd like to see more of her highly detailed work check out her Advocate portfolio.

"Born and bred in Kent, I loved painting as a child and used to paint my own version of the Disney characters. I'd always wanted to do something with art and went to the Kent Institute of Art & Design to see what possibilities awaited me. I was inspired by the works of David Shepherd and Norman Rockwell for their level of detail even though they had two diversely different styles.

I usually work in watercolour but can do pencil or acrylics depending on the requirement. My style is realistic, but not photo realistic, I just like it to look as it's meant to be.

Outside of the artistic field (although not far removed) I love pottery and I make and sell my own pieces. I enjoy photography as well as cycling - but I'm not too great at it and invariably end up in a ditch."
