1/ Desley has lived and breathed art from as early as she can remember. Drawing was just something she did — on every scrap of paper she could get her hands on, all over her school books (particularly during maths and then she’d get marched off to the headmaster). No matter which career path she took after school, Desley always felt a sense of restlessness, until eventually, 15 years ago, art demanded her full attention. Now she feels complete. Desley works with acrylics as her first choice of medium (including the use of high texture), followed by clay and resin. desleywilsonart.com
