For August our focus in the gallary is on marine paintings and what could be better than Dale Bowen’s new collection. His paintings are always very dynamic, packed with colour and texture. There is evident joy in the way he paints sailing boats in breezy conditions.
Dale Bowen was born in Staffordshire in 1963, where he still lives and works today. Having studied Art at college in Newcastle, Dale went on to work as a master potter; first at Coalport China and later at Wedgewood, where he stayed for fifteen years. During his time ther he created many notable commissions, including pieces for the Queen Mothers 100th birthday and HMS Victory celebrations. His works were exhibited in museums worldwide, fetching prices in excess of £100,000.
Declaring painting as his first love, Dale more recently returned his paintbrushes to canvas, and has experienced phenomenal success in doing so.All Artists
