Delgreta served as Youth Artist for the Sacramento County Children and Families Commission (1999-2000). She completed her undergraduate degree at Xavier University of Louisiana in 2005.

Since 2008, the Contemporary and Afrofuturism Visual Artist has exhibited her artwork with Northern California and Bay Area galleries and museums.

In August 2017, Delgreta was selected to participate in the curated art exhibit "Nightlight Multimedia Festival" hosted by SOMArts Cultural Center in San Francisco, CA. It was there where she shared her experimental luminous works titled "The Nightshade Series." The series--a black light installation--was an outstanding visual success.

Delgreta accepted an Eco-art project from Sacramento First Festival in May 2018. The project required the creation of an art installation which would represent cultural diversity and use recyclable materials. At the two-day music festival she displayed a unique interactive optical, sculptural and luminous installation titled, "The Ocularium." The commissioned installation was a milestone in her body of work.

Additionally, Delgreta was invited as a featured Visual Artist for the Arts Equity Summit 2019 hosted by Arts Connect International (ACI) in Boston, MA. She then received a grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation (2019).

Delgreta's recent solo exhibitions include, "Onyx & The Butterfly" and "Dreams and Abstract Vibes From The Rift." The unique exhibitions offered a physical gallery exhibit and/or gallery experience in virtual reality (VR) online platforms. The artist's exploration of VR helped her to adapt to the challenges of presenting her artwork publicly during the health pandemic in 2020 and 2021. Her introduction to VR provided new insights and opportunities while offering continued visibility and accessibility of her artwork.

Currently, she is a recipient of the "Sower" Grant (2020) from the Black Artists Foundry (BAF); scholarship program awardee of the Center for Holographic Art (2020); Digital Evolution Artist Retention (DEAR) Artist Retreat Fellow of the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI); "Republic FC Kickstart" grantee; recipient of a Cultural Equity Learning Community (CELC) "Ripple Grant" and recipient of a Comcast RISE Small Business Award.

The dynamic Artist is the CEO of AMARIGINAL ART LLC where she actively pursues her creative and entrepreneurial career. She continues pushing the boundaries of expression in her artistry.
