Artist Statement

The strength of my work comes from my distinctive use of shadowing, texture, and color relationships.  I often choose subject matter connected to nature because I love dramatizing saturated hues and shadowed forms.   My unique mixed media techniques are work intensive and use both de-constructive and building processes.  Each canvas becomes its own anthology.  The common thread for all of my work is the creativity joining representational, raw, tactile, and abstract elements. 


Delphine has always been creative; whether it was decorating a room, volunteering to help out with school crafts, or just doodling on a rainy day.  However, it was not until Delphine was faced with her diagnosis of the chronic illness Lupus in 1992 that she began to paint for herself.  Art has been a big part of her life ever since and she enjoys acrylic, collage, and mixed media painting. 

She has been selling and doing commission work for 15 years.  Delphine is an active volunteer in the art community. She is a volunteer with the Wake Forest Guild of Artists and currently serves on the Wake Forest Public Arts Commission.  Her art can be found in Southern Suds & Gifts in quaint downtown Wake Forest as well as 311 Gallery in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh.
