  Delma Tayer Art

Oil, Pastel, & Watercolor Paintings,
Oriental, Organic,  & Dyed Paper Collages and Prints 

The arts give meaning to my life.  My profession reflected that philosophy for twenty-five years at Yakima Valley Community College teaching English, Art History and the Humanities, and lastly as Dean of Arts and Sciences. I served for 15 years also as Director of the on-campus, Larson Gallery. At the same time I exhibited paintings and pottery on a regular basis. After retirement in 1990, I became a full-time artist.

During the long scope of my art career, I have experimented and worked with most mediums available to me. Though my formal training was in abstract expressionism, I have not been confined to that style. Although I enjoy working with the figure, I call myself primarily a landscape painter.

I am proud to be a Local Yakima Artist.  I also pride myself on personal service and connection with my customers.
  For that reason, I have chosen not to sell my work via third party payment services at this time but ask
 if you are interested in purchasing any of my art, that you contact me direct.

  Shipping costs vary depending on the size of the art and shipping method preferred. 
Please contact me to arrange for purchase and shipping.

E-mail Delma Tayer for more information.
