Studio 9: Dale Shutt

Painting on silk, printmaking

Dale’s work is influenced by the sights and colours that surround her where she lives and works. She likes to take the leap from what her eyes see around her to what her imagination tells her can be seen.

Dale Shutt is a visual artist living on Ile-du-Grand-Calumet, in Pontiac County, West Quebec. Her principal medium is painting on silk. She also works in the unique medium of woodcut printing on hand painted silk.

Dale is primarily self-taught. In 1985 with assistance of two grants from the Quebec Ministry of Culture, she began her explorations of the medium. Since then she has never looked back. Through the years she has used her medium to create wearable art, kites, framed paintings, large wall hangings and sculptures. Dale has exhibited her work in Ontario and Quebec, and internationally in Nagoya Japan, St. Petersburg, Russia, and Vermont, USA.

Dale has taught silk painting at Algonquin College Mississippi Mills School of Art, The Pontiac School of the Arts and through the Quebec Culture in Education program as well as giving workshops in her home studio.

I look forward to welcoming you to my Island Studio.
