Deserie Valloreo was raised in Clearwater, FL and moved to St Petersburg in 1994. For as long as she can remember she had yearning to paint. In 2017, Deserie enrolled in a beginner acrylic class and learned painting fundamentals with Judith Dazzio. She continues to explore on her own and hone her skills as an artist. She completed her first commissioned painting in January 2020 and her art is often featured in exhibits around the Tampa Bay area.
“I attempt to be courageous in my use of color and I am enamored with the way light touches objects. The combination of these two things results in creations that appear slightly surreal.”
