Living and working in both France and India, Maite Delteil draws on the diverse aesthetics of her environment for her works. In her canvases, plant and birdlife are put into focus; trees teeming with colorful flowers, birds flying in the air and sitting on lush green grass marks most of her paintings in a tranquil and subtle appreciation for nature. Coupled with the use of a bright palette, Maite enhances the whimsical quality of her paintings, bringing together nature and artifice in a detailed yet restrained portrayal.
