Delila was born and raised in Virginia and now resides in southern Arizona. She is a member of the Sonoran Plein Air Painters. As a child she spent much of her time painting and drawing, usually animals.  As an adult she has taken a variety of local classes in watercolor and acrylic while raising a family.In 2017, while living in Houston Texas she stumbled on an oil painting class that was held in  the back of an frame and gift shop called Sedona Joes’s  in the small quaint town of Humble TX.  Admiring the work of the Artist & teacher Shawn Olsen she signed up for the Saturday morning classes and fell in love with the many aspects and creative possibilities of oils.Originally her work leaned more toward realism, but she finds that after hours and hours of studying work by past and present artist she leans more toward impressionism, abstract and bright colors.  She loves to travel and take classes whenever possible.
Her proudest moment since she started painting was when she brought a painting to class that she had been working on at home and as soon as her instructor saw it he said "if you don't want this painting I do".
Another proud moment was when she was taking a class in Humble Tx she left an oil painting that she had just finished on the easel while she went to lunch. Shortly thereafter she received a call about someone who wanted to purchase the painting. When she returned to class the painting had sold.
Delila has had several painting sell in unexpected ways.
She has collectors in Virginia, Texas, Arizona and California.
