Welcome to my art page! Thank you so much for stopping by! My name is Des Leavitt and I have been doing art my whole life!
My family and my bringing up were very supportive of a creative mind. Everyone does art when they are little, I just never stopped. I grew up in Idaho with some farm animals, a plethora of little brothers, and lots of outdoor adventures. Whenever I decided to experiment with different types of canvas, the farm animals and the little brothers were covered in paint and marker. People were always confused about why our family's animals were so colorful.
When I was sixteen I fell in love with oil paint, we've had our ups and downs --just like any friendship-- but I still love it. I continue to work in mostly oil paint today.
I attended school at Brigham Young University Idaho and married the love of my life, and we now have a son who is my precious little baby angel muffin. I graduated with my BFA emphasis in painting. I absolutely loved learning from the art masters at the University.
Now I am an after "bedtime" painter. Being a mother is my full-time job --that I freaking love--, but making art is something I am super passionate about and can't ever stop doing. Thanks again for visiting my page!
