BILL DALE – Demo Artist for March!


Bill Dale Bio
I began my art training as a kid with my mother who was a fashion illustrator in Kansas City in the 1950’s and 1960’s. From my her, I received valuable support, training and criticism. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Industrial Design in 1969. The most memorable thing from my college years was the 7:30 life drawing classes three days a week. I didn’t appreciate it then but now consider it some of my most valuable education. I began my professional career working in a design office in Wichita Kansas. There I learned the commercial side of art and honed my technical drawing and rendering skills. After 20 years, I opened my own design office in Texas. My primary profession is ‘Product Design’, specializing in exterior and interior styling, color, graphics, and illustration of aircraft and other transportation products. I have been painting landscape/cityscape subjects and lately have been moving into more figurative work and portraits. Still trying to get control of the techniques, paints and materials. My work must be improving as I have been asked to do some “demos’ and small workshops for local art groups. I hold Signature Memberships in Society of Watercolor Artists (SWA), Southwestern Watercolor Society (SWS), Western Federation of Watercolor Societies (WFWS), and Watercolor Honor Society (WHS).
