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 at Wedgewood he created many notable commissions, including pieces for the Queen Mother’s 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 Bowen more recently returned his paintbrushes to canvas, and has experienced phenomenal success in doing so. His playful paintings are packed with colour and texture, proving themselves to be extremely popular with adults and children alike. Animals, people and vehicles are hidden amongst the vibrant, whimsical landscapes with the humorous titles of each work revealing the artists evident affection for each scene.
The artist’s delightful pieces are popular the length and breadth of the country, with his limited edition collections consistently selling out in record time. The joy with which Dale Bowen paints is evident in every one of his creations and is equal only by those fortunate enough to own them.
