"Sculptor of Bronze Masterworks"

Born in Montreal adjacent to the Mohawk Iroquois Reservation, Delesprie collected clay from the riverbanks of the reservation to create her first statues.

She became fascinated with and sculpted the children and the older Natives. Later she went on to do the same with Native Americans traveling throughout the United States.

Delesprie obtained her degree from Loyola University. She then attended Brandis Art Institute taking both private and group classes over a four-year period. Her mentors included: Marion Young, Don Gale and Richard MacDonald.

At the age of 26 Delesprie began sculpting Gene Autry and his horse Champion for the Autry Museum in Griffith Park, CA.

This launched her career that has spanned 3 decades and seen the creation of monuments for: Angel Stadium, Eisenhower Medical Center, Orange County Firefighters Authority Memorial, The Americana in Glendale, The Promenade in Westlake Village, Los Robles Medical Center as well as life-sized sculptures at the Commons in Calabasas.

Another outstanding achievement was the sculpting of two heroic monumental angels for the “City of Angels”. Standing over 35 feet in height, this emotional and graceful monument is an icon and landmark for Los Angeles at the Grove near the Farmers Market. For other monuments please see Monuments & Commissions located under Gallery on the Menu Bar.

Sculpture is a visual language and Delesprie uses this vehicle in the arts and teaching. Delesprie does mentoring for selected sculpture students. She also leads healing art workshops for at-risk and impoverished children, women and families, locally and in Eastern Europe, Central America and Haiti.
