Delia was born in San Francisco, CA in 1971 and was raised by young, idealistic parents. The culture at the time was unconventional and her exposure to it introduced her to a world of creative, open-minded possibilities. During her graduate studies at Boise State University, she was introduced to the art of enameling. After working with many mediums, she knew she had found her artistic passion after completing her first enamel piece. She welcomes the unexpected and is energized by the possibilities of applying a modern, open sensibility to an ancient art form.
