Desiraé Ofori was born and raised in Miami, Florida a vibrant city rich in culture and diversity. For as long as she can remember, Desiraé has always had a sketchbook, journal or random scraps of paper filled with drawings, doodles, and or patterns. She also spent 4 years in visual and performing art magnet schools.

In 2002, Desiraé moved to Lakeland, Florida to pursue a degree and career in the mental health field – yet continued to practice her creative side as a self-taught abstract artist, self-taught graphic designer and also became well known for her detailed hand-painted designs on wedding aisle runners.

In 2018, Desiraé stepped away from the Mental Health and Social Services field to pursue a professional career in art. It was then that she discovered the Acrylic Pour Painting technique and fell in love. Desiraé has spent countless hours, researching, practicing, and honing in on her interpretation of the Acrylic Pour technique. In 2019 she added Alcohol Ink art to her art practice.

Desiraé loves vibrant, rich colors, geometric shapes, patterns and the soft calming effects of blown paint colors. Desiraé hopes her paintings evoke joy, relaxation and expand your imagination as you interpret her art.

Desiraé has several of her artwork held in private collections throughout the U.S. and internationally. She is also a gallery represented artist at Curated Interiors Fine Art and Furniture in Lakeland, Florida.
