About the artist: Desere has the gift of creativity and imagination and it shows in her work. She has been perfecting her craft since an early age and has touched hundreds of people in the process. Every picture drawn is handmade and no filters or edit software were used to create the artwork. 

With a keen attention to detail, Desere has done everything from painting both original and popular children’s artwork on the halls and walls of both homes and businesses alike; creating graphics, signs, paintings of houses, face painting, and magazines for professional organizations as well as for intimate occasions such as weddings, and is always looking to expand her craft.
