Deziree Dizon’s pastel and oil paintings contain portraits of people and animals, as well as self portraits. After completing her MFA and a stint as a custom art framer, her first public showing was in 2017. 

Her process utilizes artistic and emotional reverse-engineering: a breakdown of the color, shape and forms to be executed, along with a consideration of a subject’s facial expressions, personal and public relationships, and the effort of maintaining those connections in daily life. Her pieces are drafted via technical and emotional journaling derived from “mostly listening and staring at people”.

During the onset of the pandemic in 2020, Deziree experienced a massive shift in her daily life and routines. She used the intervening years as an opportunity to reevaluate and reframe her relationship with friends, family, and her practice of art. Her current portfolio focuses on themes of personal acceptance, acknowledgement of experiences and history, and a belief in artistic process and pastel as a medium.
