Karen Delaney has been a sculptor for twenty+ years and is a happily married mother of three teenagers. She has created art and exhibited in several galleries and group shows in the US; Vienna, Austria; Warsaw, Poland and Dunajvarous, Hungary. After earning her MFA with a Teaching Fellowship at Radford University in Virginia she taught subjects like Color Theory, Three Dimensional Design and Art History at the Indiana University of PA, Emmanuel College in Boston and The Anglo-American College in Prague. Since her children were born she has acquired a Museum Studies Certificate from Harvard University in Boston, worked at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh and volunteered in art programs for the Unionville-Chadds Ford school district. Currently she spends most of her time making sculpture in her West Chester studio and dedicates some time to organizing art shows for charity and giving “lunch lectures" on various art topics to interested groups.
“I like working with steel because of its strength and color and the immediacy of the welding technique. The masculine qualities I associate with the material contrast well with the more naturalistic and often quirky forms I create."
