Diljá Þorvaldsdóttir (she/her) is, in her heart of hearts, a painter. She is interested in mirror sides and mirror images, shifts in perspective, alternate realities, and queerness.

Diljá graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from The Iceland University of the Arts in 2021. She has shown nationally and internationally, and received a travel grant from the Iceland Arts Association to attend a residency in Philadelphia in 2022, where she first became interested in textile as a means for protest, examination of gender bias, and a form of painting.

Diljá lives in downtown Reykjavik with her partner Sadie Cook. She and Sadie currently run Gallery Kannski.
