Hi, I’m des. I’m a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in San Diego, CA. I am drawn to depicting the quiet moments in life, periods of observation, and stories rooted in our connection with one another through various mediums and processes both digital and physical.

Growing up I spent most of my time drawing and painting before going on to receive my BFA in illustration from ArtCenter College of Design. Since then, I’ve work professionally as graphic designer where I strive to offer unique and fresh approaches to my design projects.



I’m always open to new opportunities and collaborations, send me a message at des[@]desenano.com
