As a self-taught professional mosaic artist since 2003, Delaine has created many large-scale public art mosaics and community style mosaic projects in the San Francisco Bay area. Employing precision setting techniques, her works are highly textural, made with primarily ceramic and include glass and miscellaneous found objects. Her murals depict a sense of flow and often tell a story. Delaine is also known for her whimsical pet portraits in mosaic and has been teaching mosaic portraiture workshops since 2005. Delaine resides in Oakland CA.
