Artist Profile - Aileen Dike

Vivacious, petite and full of energy from the tip of her toes to the pert top notch sitting elegantly on the top of her head, Aileen Dike has been corralled just long enough to become the Featured Artist for the Boulder City Art Gallery during the months of January, February and March. Everyone is invited to come and view her outstanding presentation located at the Boulder Dam Hotel

The subject matter for her work features scenes from the Pacific Coast to the Southwest desert and the flora and fauna to be found there. Aileen’s work is done in the style of a pure watercolorist, emphasizing the transparency and luminosity of the media. Her palette is bright contrasting colors that sparkle on the paper. Many of her paintings have been collected nationally and internationally and are extremely popular with people living in the Southwest.

Aileen was born in Auckland, New Zealand and came to the United States as a war bride after WWII. A self-taught artist, she has been painting for over forty years. She has participated in workshops presented by well-known watercolorists such as Zoltan Szarbo, Daniel Umberger and Carl Purcell.

Presently, Aileen is serving as President for the Boulder City Art Guild and Vice President for the City of Lights Gallery in Henderson. She is also a signature member of the Nevada Watercolor Society and a member of the Las Vegas Watercolor Society. She exhibits her work in the Boulder City Fine Arts Festival in April, and presently has work hanging in the BC Chamber of Commerce offices, the Boulder City City Hall and at the Boulder City Airport.

This is a show not to miss!
