Collection: Desree Pettera

Basically, I am just an “old lady” whose art story began 30+ years ago.

My art education isn’t very elaborate. It is comprised of a couple of classes at a community college under the best and only art instructor I have ever known, Don Dernovich. He taught me what I loved and I had to push it away for over 30 years. 

I retired a few years ago and decided it was time to focus on myself. (Boy…. I sure am selfish. (LOL) It was time to focus on art, but It was hard to pick up the brush again. I had buried those cherished memories of drawing & painting, too deep to find. 

Thank heavens my one and only art instructor has been trying to reteach me for a little over 2 years now. It has been interesting doing this by texting.  

There is a better synopsis of most of this on my website: (desreepetteraart.com)

Right now I lay claim to being the “happiest old lady” painting today. Art is a passion and what I paint has to stir my heart. I paint what I know, the Rural and Country world.

I am finding myself after being lost for years. 

Feelings abound!
