Dominique Seiwert, the artist named Déesse, was born in 1954 in Friedrichshafen, a city on the northern shoreline of Lake Constance in Southern Germany. After various professional experiences and many journeys, in the beginning of the 2000s, she decided to devote herself to art.

Inspired by graffiti she saw on many of her travels, as well as the exciting costumes and bright colors of Carnival in Rio and Brazilian art, she soon became famous for her sculptures lovingly made from resin, marble dust and painted by hand. Influenced by such artists as Piet Mondrian, Paul Klee and Victor Vasarely, she has developed her very personal style that blends pop art and a certain affection for the great female format. Déesse currently lives and works in Metz/France.
