Artist Profile -
Aileen Dike
Boulder City is graced by the presence of this fine contemporary watercolor artist. She is well known throughout the community and Southern Nevada for her art work and her work in the arts. Her pet project is helping the ABC Art Center with projects and exhibits.

Aileen Dike was born and grew up in Auckland, New Zealand and came to the United States as a war bride after World War II. Her accent is still noticeable and is one of her most desirable traits.

She is mostly self taught in watercolor but has attended many instructional workshops and classes at Canada College in Redwood City, California and studied with Zoltan Szarbo and Daniel Umberger. She has taken short courses with Carl Purcell and Osral Allred at Snow College in Utah.

Her work is very representative of the world around her. Her landscapes, animal life and bird life from the southwestern United States environs are her favorite subjects but florals such as this one are prevalent in her exhibits.

Aileen is currently President of the Boulder City Art Guild as well as a member of the Guild Gallery in the Boulder Dam Hotel. She is a signature member of the Nevada Watercolor Society and also exhibits at the City Lights Art Gallery in Henderson. Other exhibits that include her work may be seen at the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce and the City Hall in Boulder City. She put together a new Sinter art show a few years ago and it is becoming more popular every year.

She participated in the Art in the Park for many years as well as continuously at the Boulder City Fine Arts Festival. She is an award winning artist whose work is owned by collectors nationally and internationally.

See her art work at the Art Guild Gallery in the Boulder Dam Hotel at 1305 Arizona Street in Boulder City.
