Delphine Desane’s Expressive Portraits of Women

Artist Delphine Desane started painting during maternity leave in the middle of her fashion career, and she never looked back. She often paints women she knows and the ones she sees in the photographs.

“Becoming a mother has been a rebirth for me, physically and emotionally,” she told WePresent. “Motherhood is intense and magical at the same time. If it wasn’t for him who knows what I would be doing now.”

Desane was born and raised in France. Her parents are Haitian and her connection to her heritage is strong. Desane’s portraits lack details, but they’re full of expression.
