|"You are not a thing"
Mixed Media, 60" x 48"
“I am interested in exploring the terrain of my paintings as they unfold before me. As an intuitive
painter, I enjoy the journey of my work, and feel that allowing freedom for a painting to wander is a
metaphor for my ongoing personal evolution towards allowing my life to unfold as a more fluid
experience” -Deseré Pressey.

Deseré Pressey is a 33 year old native Albertan, entrepreneur and mother of three who has co-
founded three successful businesses over the last decade. Each business venture had a common
thread of being creative in nature. However, she has always felt a strong pull towards her true
passion for painting, and made the decision to cease resisting her true calling years ago. In the
embrace of art, Deseré now dedicates a majority of her time to painting, and her skill of the visual
language has been welcomed by the creative community with open arms. Deseré Pressey's work
has been exhibited in multiple galleries, and her steady rise as an emerging artist has caught the
attention of collectors & purchasers on an international level. Deseré is an active member of the
Calgary Arts & Culture scene and runs ongoing monthly events for patrons, musicians and visual
artists alike. Desere attributes much of her success to her full embrace of new opportunities as
they arise, which she feels aids in sustaining a connection with the creative intelligence that unites
us all. Following bliss...so that others may follow theirs.
