Advocate Art would like to introduce one of our new artists, Regina Silva. We think her bright designs would be perfect for greetings cards. See more of Regina’s work by visiting her portfolio on our website or read on to learn more about the artist.
I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines, and have been drawing ever since I can remember. I used to get in trouble for drawing on the margins of my school books (my maths and Philippine history books, especially) and on the walls of our house before I moved on to paper, canvas, and eventually, the computer.
I graduated with a degree in Multimedia Arts in 2005 and went on to work for several years as a motion graphics designer for television before I realized I wanted to get into illustration. I enjoy drawing cute, fun, and whimsical animals, people, and objects. I see my style/work as a reflection of my personality– happy, bright, and not one to take life so seriously.
When not drawing or designing, I love travelling (I try to document my travels in a sketchbook), taking photos, dabbling in arts and crafts, and watching movies.
