Hello!! My name is Desiree but most people call me Dez (less syllables). Im a Florida girl and I have loved art and color since I could remember. I was always the kid people picked as a partner for art projects and who gave advise on the the color coordination of outfits. Im out spoon, out going and a little abnormal, just like my art. I love being able to spread the joy of art to others and teach people how much fun life can be with a little bit of color!

What's up guys, my name is Salomon but my friends call me Salo (Sah-low). I was born in Philadelphia PA, and raised in sunny South Florida. Since I can remember I've always been interested in the arts. Being that I’m a 90's kid, I can recall my fascination watching Bob Ross on PBS and being mesmerized by those "little happy trees". At that point I knew I wanted to make people feel how he made me feel. As a preteen I tried applying for a Magnet School “Design and Architecture Senior High” located in the art district in Miami. I wasn't accepted because I didn't meet their requirements as an artist and although it was a blow to my ego, instead of taking the Adolf route I continued to work on myself and perfected my craft. Now not only am I finally a full time artist, but I'm also selling artwork throughout the nation.
