Meet the Artist:
I am a native of Cookeville, TN now residing in Baltimore, MD. I discovered my artistic talents in my senior year of high-school. This discovery led me to attend Miami International University of Art and Design for digital illustration. While at MIUAD, I took my first painting class. I was in love as soon as I picked up his my bristly brush. This love prompted me to go into business for myself doing what I love, painting, and that is how Designs by Devante was born.
While focusing heavily on color and design, I attempt to portray the same message with every creation. "Beauty comes from the brightest of colors illustrating the deepest of sentiments." With every piece, I also inserts my own personal goal and aim for a piece's beauty as well. The materials I commonly uses are acrylic and oil paints, markers, graphite, charcoal, and even digital forms of media, whatever is required to deliver an outstanding product.
