Lady Delaney’s biography will stand as cautionary tale to interested parties. Within a Midwestern suburban manor, her childhood was typical: from the kitchen, Father conducted political campaigns; in the garage, Brother built submarines; beside the hearth, Mother collected sheltie fur to spin into socks. At university, the Lady distinguished herself as a spectacularly mediocre student with a GPA no one would brag about. Despite this setback, she went on to an even less spectacular scholarship and subsequent art drop-out-ship at, not one, but two prestigious MFA programs. 


       In 2009, she launched her art business selling scale model miniatures. Despite her best attempts to remain unruly, her work has begun to catch the attention of publishers, curators, and window dresserers, with her creations infiltrating FAO Schwarz, international private collections, and 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 columnist & wild woman, E. Jean Carroll. Somewhere in this whirlwind of design & debauchery, she spent three memorable summers chasing bears, horses, and cowboys at a Rocky Mountain dude ranch, the legacy of which being that most of her tales begin with: ‘Once, at the dude ranch...”


       Though she enjoys a good roam---often accompanied by her bow-tie wearing feline escort, Mister Biscuit---New Orleans has proudly claimed this miscreant as its own. There she rests in one of its formerly glorious Garden District mansions, now subdivided into seedy dwellings for the seedier bohemian class. Its spacious parlors allow her to produce her own projects, collaborate with other interesting characters, and collect cats. From these haunted rooms, she devises new means of getting old stories into peoples’ hearts, and she remains doomed by her hardheadedness to a life of doing whatever she damn well pleases whenever and howsoever she damn well pleases to do it.

Lady Delaney communicates with the world via her handler, Lauren Delaney George, who happens to share many of these aforementioned biographical details.
