Denise Michele Dupree

I'm a 25 year old widowed mother to one, and pet mom to 2 dogs, a turtle, and a fish. I have lived in Detroit, MI my entire life and that has been a great source of inspiration for me. I'm the oldest of 8 children. But you probably want to know more about me as an artist.....

I have always been interested in art. I can't remember when I first started creating, but I was pretty young. My parents put me into a weekend art school program at Wayne State University from age 8 until age 18. Additionally, I took numerous art classes in middle school, high school, and college. My classes were not limited to application, I also got a taste of art history and the elements of good design.

I was always interested in painting. However, painting is not my strong suit. I can paint pretty well, but nothing special. As I grew as a person and an artist, I realized that pencil and ink were the mediums that worked best for me and the ones that I worked best in. As such, painting has largely become a backdrop for my other art forms. I still have yet to experiment in watercolors though, which is odd given how many classes I have taken.

When I was 17, I started teaching myself graphic design. I had a few graphic design classes, so I really just began teaching myself the basics. Surprisingly, I was pretty good at it. I started my own small business focusing on logos, business cards, fliers, and CD labels. I have continued this and now I have a business - DD Art and Design - on Etsy, where I create custom logos, business branding materials, and invitations for weddings and other events. My passion for fine art, however, has not wavered. I still produce fine art and have every intention of showcasing and selling it to art collectors, art appreciators, and those who just like something nice to look at.
