Distantly related to Rodin, Delouis received no formal artistic education and her talent was left to develop unconstrained. She admits to painting instinctively and like Bonnard, one of the artists who has most influenced her work, ambience is more important than drawing. For this reason she paints directly onto her canvasses without any preliminary sketching. Delouis celebrates the role of the woman at the very soul of the home, whether at washing, in the kitchen or sewing, all set in an atmosphere of peace, gentleness and beauty. Her work is infused with light and saturated colour.
