Delaney Conner is a New York City based artist born and raised in the mountains of Colorado. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2017 where she majored in Architecture and minored in Art History. Always exploring different creative outlets, Conner discovered punch needle embroidery in 2019 and has been expanding her skill and subject matter in this medium for the past two years. Her utilization of the punch needle technique deviates from her education in architectural watercolor rendering, but one that she equates to “painting with textiles”. Conner currently lives and works in New York City, practicing in architecture as well as pursuing her passion for art. Conner's Femme and Visage series aim to highlight the dichotomy between feeling beautiful and becoming sexualized that women often experience when they are perceived through the oeuvre of modern society. By abstracting identifiable features and removing individual characteristics to varying degrees, Conner explores the perception of the female form. Her mission is to create broadly familiar subjects that reflect femininity as part of the whole rather than the individual.
