Meet the artists

We're so excited to announce that Di Brookes is now an Advocate artist! Specialising in Greetings cards designs and Christmas designs, we're sure that she will make a fabulous addition to the Advocate family and we can't wait to see what's next. To find more of Di's work visit her Advocate portfolio.

"I graduated from Staffordshire University in 2001 after studying Surface Pattern Design.  I have worked in the design industry for 15 years now, designing & illustrating for ceramics for Royal Worcester and for the latter 10 years at a major greeting card company in Northamptonshire.

Recently I became a freelance Illustrator inspired by my kids, flowers & butterflies, and anything that makes a decorative pattern! I like to work with watercolour, pen & ink and Photoshop and would describe my work as classic, decorative and feminine!

When I’m not painting or designing I create beautifully decorated cakes for friends and family and anyone who asks.  I love musicals, chocolate, flowers, patterns, tea, wine, my family and the beach! I hate being tickled!"
