Dale Duncan

Art You Can Live With

Artist's Statement

Bright colours, bold shapes, and interpreting light and shadow are my passions. As you can see by my work I explore a wide variety of subjects and different media. I find I am constantly evolving in my techniques and goals. My desire is for my art to be a never-ending process of learning and absorbing as much as I can. My happiest moment is when another soul connects with my work. I paint anything that pleases me, and if, through my paintings, the viewer has a sense of what I see and an appreciation of the same, then I am truly gratified.

About the Artist

Dale Duncan lives in Orillia, Ontario, where she owns and operates a small hair salon and studio. She enjoys spending time with her two grown children, traveling, and has a great fondness for being outdoors. Dale's artworks, painted in watercolours or acrylics, are inspired by an appreciation of the beautiful and unique character of the Northern Ontario countryside, particularly the hills of the Georgian Bay area, and the farms and hamlets nestled within its embrace.

Dale began painting in 2001. All it took was one workshop with an artist friend and she was hooked on the creative process. Since then she has traveled extensively in Canada, the USA, and Central America taking workshops and constantly learning and experimenting with new techniques, media, and designs. Dale loves to expand her scope and explore new dimensions with other fellow artists along the way. She has studied and honed her skills with many internationally known artists, teachers, and local painters.
