Dulcie Dee was born and raised in New York City and was an art major at the Fiorello La Guardia High School of Music and the Arts. She won 1st Prize for her NYC Anti-Drug Abuse Poster contest that inspired her to pursue the arts as her life career.
She traveled extensively throughout Southeast Asia falling in love with snorkeling in the Philippines where she discovered the unique underwater world of their lovely coral reefs. Mesmerized by the beauty of the sea, she painted the “Marine Dreams” series that premiered at the Hiraya Gallery in Manila, capturing her joyful discovery of this rapidly eroding Philippine eco-treasure.
For her Master of Fine Arts degree, Dee conceptualized, authored, designed, and illustrated a whimsical children’s book “ABC Coral Reef” to teach toddlers to appreciate the beauty of the coral reefs and tropical marine life in the Pacific Ocean. In 2012 she self-published her unique children’s book “ABC Coral Reef”.
International reviews in popular magazines such as ‘Asiaweek’, ‘Taipan’, ‘Filipinas’, and ‘Transpacific’ featured Dee’s efforts to alert the public to the conservation of its delicate and precious coral reefs.
Her work is a Zen fusion of East and West. Each painting pulsates with rich, vibrant tropical colors painted with clarity, texture, and precision detail encompassing a free-flowing sense of subject, shade and color. Her entrancing seascapes were followed by enigmatic paintings of Geishas and Asian nymphos revealing the erotic sensual beauty of the female body and their exotic facial features. In 2007, She exhibited her erotic Japanese paintings at the MonkDogz Urban Art gallery in NYC. Currently, Dee is working on her Digital Art World series and
