Mike Dale's Profile

About

Born of a love for doodling, patterns and multiples, Good Fortune Press is a window into my thoughts and likes. I hope you enjoy my original works of art.

I've wanted to be an artist my entire life....there was no question as to what I wanted to do for as long as I remember. It was in second grade that I realized I was an artist when the other kids were wanting me to complete their drawing assignments. I graduated from West Virginia State University in 2000 with a BA in Art, specializing in graphic design. Throughout art school, I loved painting, ceramics, drawing and photography, but my path led me to a healthy graphic design career. Yet something was missing, and I needed to return to making with my hands. I had a soulful yearning for getting back to handmade art works, and happily discovered that printmaking filled that void in many ways.

I love all things…

I love all things printed, and I relish in the variances that the handmade process creates.
