Delaney Seraphim Ghost.jpg

What is known of Lady Delaney will stand as cautionary tale to interested parties. At the University of Michigan, the Lady distinguished herself with a GPA no one would brag about, before going on to an even less spectacular scholarship and subsequent art-drop-out-ship at two prestigious and well-fortified MFA programs. 

In 2009, she began sculpting full-scale rubbish into one-inch wonders. Despite her attempts to remain unruly, her work has caught the attention of publishers, curators, and window dresserers, with her creations infiltrating FAO Schwarz, international private collections, the National Building Museum in DC, as well as solo exhibitions and numerous national publications. In 2017, her DIY book, All Dolled Up, was a #1 New Release on Amazon. Her freelance career includes stints collaborating with Tiffany & Co., Monique Lhuillier, and ELLE wild woman, E. Jean Carroll. Somewhere in the whirlwind, she spent three summers chasing bears, horses, and cowboys at Cherokee Park Ranch. The consequence of this being that most of her tales begin with,‘Once, at the dude ranch...”

 Though she enjoys a good wander---accompanied by her bow-tie wearing cats---New Orleans has claimed this miscreant as its own. There she paces midnight halls of a Garden District mansion, subdivided into seedy dwellings for the seedier bohemian class. In its spacious parlors she collaborates with kindred oddballs, devising new ways of getting old stories into people's hearts. She remains doomed by hardheadedness to a life of doing whatever she pleases whenever and howsoever she pleases to do it. She also solves the occasional mystery, releasing the case files available for public perusal here.

​ Lady Delaney communicates with the world via her handler, Lauren, who happens to share many of these same biographical details. Catch one, or the other, on the Very Local Channel's premiere episode of Maker Nation.
