About the Artist
Desiree was born in 1983 in the industrial town of Vereening, just outside Johannesburg, South Africa.
Pursuing her art career from an early age, she attended extra art classes in the evening after school. Persistency paid off when she won a national art competition which took her on an extensive tour though South Africa. It was on this trip where the inspiration to capture the Africa soul on canvas was born.
Desiree's family moved to Fish Hoek in Cape Town, the art capital of South Africa and she juggled her time between being a full time art student and painting murals and portraits to pay for her studies. She was awarded a scholarship for her second year and once she graduated she worked for the infamous interior decorator, Ralph Krall. During her work she did a course in interior design which created the platform to launch her art career.
After numerous visits abroad to paint private collections, Deziree’s paintings live on in England, Holland, Spain, France, Germany, Bahamas and in the USA. Ultimately, her goal remains to paint and exhibit her own creation.
Inspired by the mystery and luminous beauty of the African woman, her first genre was created. With semi-realism and vivid colours, her style is distinctive. Dark skin, tribal costumes and ominous eyes all beat down on canvas capturing the rhythm of Africa.
