Leaf Art of Dessie Jeanne Marshall

Dessie Jeanne Marshall is an artist born in Drumheller, Alberta of Cananda. Dessie was artistically inclined from a very young age. She was a child who spent countless hours searching for dinosaur fossils, riding horses, and watching with utter fascination the tiny yet epic adventures carried out by the insect world.

At the age of twenty, she was studying the features of a large leaf with her usual sort of appreciation when the image of an elephant head suddenly became apparent to her perception. Inspired, she took the leaf home and carved it to reveal the hidden image. From that day on she began to look at leaves in a whole new way. at the age of 24, she moved to Mexico for the winter to search the jungle for leaves and pursue her dream of sharing these visions with the world.

Dessie has named this pioneering form Violent Hippie Leaf Art. She is now set to take the art world by peaceful storm, and hopes her work will one day go down in history as a completely new form of art, brought about by her deep appreciation for nature.
