Desiree resides in the woodlands of eastern Pennsylvania among Sassafras and Tulip Poplars, near the shores of a lake frequented by Great Blue Herons, White-tailed Deer, and Muskrats.
Her lifelong interest in Faerylore, mythology, symbolism, and Nature have greatly influenced both the style and subjects of her work as well as providing a deeper context for her art practice. She has a particular passion for mythopoetic portraiture wherein she seeks to capture the elusive muses of Faery, often translating their presence into theriomorphic figures. Desiree's artwork also possesses something of its own dark aesthetic - there are threads of melancholy, sorrow, and subtle traces of a morbid fascination to be found by the observant throughout her work. The chthonic, arcane, and mysterious have long been inspirational companions, stirring her imagination and leading her to explore certain aspects of myth and symbolism through art.
To date her work has been featured on the Endicott Studio of Mythic Arts Blog, in the online poetry journal Goblin Fruit, within Epilogue's New Masters of Fantasy volume III collection, and in SageWoman magazine. Desiree's pieces have also graced the covers of PaganNet News and GypsyRose catalog.
Desiree's work has been chosen to appear in Epilogue's prestigious New Masters of Fantasy: Volume 3 collection.
Desiree attended Tyler School of Art from 2002 - 2006 where she majored in Graphic & Interactive Design with an emphasis on Illustration.
