She earned her Bachelor's Degree in art from Cleveland Institute of Art and her Masters Degree in Education from Baldwin Wallace University. She has shown her enamels throughout the country and internationally. She also has work in privately owned collections.
Delinda creates artwork in a variety of mediums. While she prefers to work in enamel (glass on metal), she leaves room for other mediums depending on subject matter and where her intuition leads her. While she is inspired by her love of the ocean, traveling, nature and living by Lake Erie she also finds inspiration in her love of music and living life. Delinda thinks of the art making process like having a conversation with a friend. One mark leads to the next. Letting the work speak to her means it is never forced but natural.
