Delphine studied Political Science at university and during her education she spent a year in Great Britain where she became aware of film and theatre production. When she returned to Canada, she finished her degree in Political Science and moved to an urban environment with the intention of pursuing graduate studies.
A chance encounter with a film writer turned her career path 180 degrees. Armed with a sewing machine, research skills and a good work ethic Delphine did her first movie. A piece set in 1840. Eventually, after a couple of years in the business she was afraid she’d be “found out” as untrained and went to college to learn design and pattern drafting.
Since that time she has worked continually in all aspects of the film, on feature films, mini-series, television series and commercials.
Delphine established herself with the early films of David Cronenberg including ‘Fast Company”, “Scanners” “The Brood” and Videodrome”.
She has worked with directors Jim Sheridan, Terry Gilliam, Norman Jewison, Antoine Fuqua, and Barry Levinson, and assisted on films directed by Gus Van Sant, James Foley, Paul Schrader, Nick Cassavetes and many more.
Her television work includes “The Kennedy’s After Camelot”, the tv Pilot for “Taken” and the miniseries “The Dovekeepers”, as well as “Copper” for BBC America, and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, “Hidden Room’, ‘War of the Worlds”, Phillip Marlowe Private Eye”.
She is a member in good standing of Iatse 873 in Toronto, and The Costume Designer’s Guild Iatse Local 892 in Los Angeles.
Delphine is a founding member of CAFTCAD (The Canadian Alliance of Film and Television Costume Arts and Design).
