Deise Dias Cavalheiro was born in São Paulo, Brazil.

After arriving in Singapore, in 1996, Deise became fascinated with Asia's thriving culture and soon after turned her interest to the art of Chinese brush painting. What started off as a simple past-time soon became a passion.

Her first works, landscapes and flowers, were highly influenced by the old Chinese masters.

Her most recent works are results of experimenting and exploring with different kinds of paper, new textures and colors.

Her paintings showcase traditional themes in a bright, colorful and unique form.
