Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration

Allen Dale Redfern, AFCA

Dale was born in Stettler, Alberta, Canada, in 1943, into a very dysfunctional family. He started drawing at 14 to escape his environment. He entered the Signmaking field in 1961 and spent 30 years producing signs. He went back to school and earned a Diploma in Business in 1995. Joined the ‘Artists Studio & Gallery’ in Kamloops, BC in 1997. Joined the ‘Federation of Canadian Artists’ in 2003. Where he earned numerous awards for his style. He earned the Signature Level status, ‘Associate of the Federation of Canadian Artists,’ (AFCA) in 2011. The ‘Senior’ level jurors stated that “Dale has created his own art style.” He is also a Artist member of the ‘Kamloops Art Council’ and the ‘Kamloops Art Gallery’. When asked why he creates in pencil he stated: “I love black on white. It is so crisp, sharp, and clean. It goes all the way back to the Cave age. It transcends all Races and cultures. It is part of our history and roots. Roots are very important. If you really want to capture, and make a bold statement on history, old buildings, and people, pencil is perfect! And it doesn’t make a smelly mess to clean up!”
