Delaine Derry Green
Delaine Derry Green spent her first 8 years in Ohio and lived in east Tennessee before arriving in Alabama in 1985. With a BFA from Auburn University she works as a graphic designer by day and a fine artist/zine-maker/comic artist by night. Delaine's cleverly designed zines have appeared in shows at several museums including the San Jose and Baltimore Museums of Art and the Athens Institute of Contemporary Art. Eager to embrace nostalgia, she began turning her obsession with retro fashion into art in 2005 by creating acrylic paintings and mixed media pieces using vintage dress patterns from the 40s-70s, antique buttons and other sewing ephemera.
