The Talent Giselle Rolando Biography

Advocate Art would like to introduce one of our new artists Giselle Rolando. Her colourful greetings card designs are sure to be well loved! To see more of Giselle’s work visit our website or read on to learn more about the artist.

“I paint santa clause, and such things”, is usually how I would describe my “job” to those who ask, and if a smirk fails to appear, I then excitedly illustrate how captivating stationery design can be! I thoroughly enjoy my tasks… I develop as much personality in my designs as possible to spark that important emotional connection with the consumer.

I am self taught (and proud of it!) using both graphic programmes and traditional mediums such as gouache and inks to create my works. My office is a desk with far too much on it… the desk sits under a window which looks out onto garden which spills onto a little patch of beach on the eastcoast of South Africa. I have no pets, apart from the local birds that eagerly wait for me to dish out their daily bowl of seeds…In my spare time I read and…eat, and other times sometimes find myself addicted to a series on the television.

I am inspired by any pretty – well thought out- design.
