Delafield was an art teacher for 25 years, and she shares her love for art through private lessons, summer camps and elementary school programs. She is a docent at The Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida.
Her work includes fine art with pastels, watercolor and acrylic. She also enjoys sharing her love of art and design through her signature hand-painted silks. Design work for women includes clothing and accessories featuring these distinctive pieces.
Delafield is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in fashion design. Experience includes work in bridal design, children’s wear and clothing for women under her own label. Delafield sells her women’s wear collection exclusively at Jarboe.
Her fine artwork includes nature studies in pastel, rendered with the soft richness of pastel chalk. Delafield’s fine artwork has been exhibited and sold in galleries and hangs in private collections.
Writing is another form of expression for Delafield. “Gull Lake Memories: A Kayaking Adventure” is a travel journal and memoir sharing stories and paintings from the historic Brainerd lakes area.

New online exhibit: “ We Are Happy: An Exploration of Joy in Early Photography ,” Morrison County Historical Society reports it went through the “archives to find examples of people beating the stereotype that early photography was a wholly serious, grim affair. These photographs show people laughing, friends playing, and beloved pets, all captured for perpetuity. All as a reminder that no matter the time period, people are people.” The exhibit is available online via www.morrisoncountyhistory.org using the Online Exhibits dropdown.
