Le Bas told the Travellers’ Times that “I actually liked going to school which was difficult because I am the only one out of five of us that finished school. And then I had ideas about going to Art College.” She said that until starting school she had been sheltered from how racist people can be towards Gypsy Traveller people. Delaine Le Bas has shown her art extensively both in the UK and internationally, including at the International Festival of Singular Art, Roquevaire, France; the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, U.S., Transition Gallery and the 2005 and 2007 Prague Biennales. In June 2007 her work was included in the first Roma pavilion of the 2007 Venice Biennale. She took part in the Summer 2007 Prague Biennale. Le Bas participated in ROUNDTABLE: The 9th Gwangju Biennale, which took place September 7 – November 11, 2012 in Gwangju, Korea.
