Delina describes herself as a semi-retired dabbler in writing, painting, sculpting, and
photography. She draws her inspiration for paintings and poetry from the pool of
images absorbed during her South African childhood on the subtropical east coast of
KwaZulu-Natal, as well as from the rich lore of the African continent's indigenous
 Colorful creatures such as crocodiles and leguaans sometimes populate her poems
and prose; half a lifetime amongst the rhythms and art of Africa has left a strong echo.
Her native language is Afrikaans.
 Delina lived in the Eugene area for the past several years, but has recently moved
back to the foothills of California where she and John, her Honey, are taming ten acres
of chaparral near Placerville.
