De Luca first pours a thin  layer of acrylic paint onto raw unprimed canvas. She then puts a layer of fabric on top of this. Depending upon the mood she wishes to create, the artist uses either transparent or opaque fabric. The artist credits Duchamp for inspiring her unique approach.

In this clip a brief interview with the De Luca as artist in residence in Irvine, California. De Luca was the first official artist in residence at the Irvine Fine Arts Center. Her printmaking process is quite detailed.:

De Luca also gives credit for inspiration to the daily life she lives in Los Angeles, California. A wonderful mix of digital technology and natural beauty.
