Bio:

 

Delaney Davis is a fine artist and illustrator, with a main focus in oils. A dual-citizen of America and Ireland, she received a BA in Fine Art from the University of Nevada, Reno, before moving to Ireland permanently in 2013.

 

The influenced of both Irish and American landscapes is apparent in her work, although she tends to avoid depicting places that are too recognisable. The work focuses on urban landscapes, solitary roads, electrical wires, street lights, or rural settings, bringing attention to locations often overlooked.

She has also established some illustrated projects, usually of Irish interests, including wildlife, history, and local scenery.

A resident artist at the Kilbaha Gallery, Delaney has work in galleries in Ireland and the US, as well as many private collections.
