Biography:

Delilah Smith 
8308 Odowling Onsted MI 
 
Statement 
 
From Private Banker to Private Art Collections 
 
Investment Specialist Delilah Smith says,” The challenge of maximizing return on principal will never compare to mixing the correct pigments in order to evoke my feelings on canvas. Color is not enough I need to connect to the hearts of those who view my paintings. I am a passionate painter of color and emotions. My former work as an Investment Specialist refined the discipline I need to work with fiery colors and passionate brush work.” 
 
In 2005 Delilah decided to chose her dreams and become the artist, she desperately wanted to be since her college days. There is something sobering when one day you look up and realize your life is slipping away, vanishing and you are no closer to your dreams then you were in 1976. Few would leave a successful business to pursue a passion. Few are like Delilah who has soared to the top in all that she has put her mind to. 
 
More than technique or design, it is color that makes a Delilah step off the wall into the hearts of the viewer. Delilah says of her paintings, Color is the language that speaks to everyone. I use color in my conversations with the canvas. Some conversations are like shooting matches and some are tranquil and serene. Michigan is the home of Delilah. It is the need to make art and find her voice that drives her; a voice that will let you listen with your eyes. To own a Delilah is to own part of her exceptional drive and desire to be the best that she can be each and every time she steps up to the easel. Talent linked with passion is the magic that you will discover in a Delilah.
