South Carolina native Dale Cochran is an artist that has a gift for revealing the uniqueness and beauty in things seemingly plain, illuminating the stories and spirits behind the ordinary – an old barn, a basket of pecans, a child caught in a moment of imagination, a crayon on pavement.

As a high school student, Dale experienced his first formal training from Liz Smith-Cox. "I had no idea what perspective or contour drawing meant," Dale says. As a junior, he broke his drawing arm playing football just before the school year started. When he approached Mrs. Liz about dropping the class because he wouldn't be able to use his arm for a while, her response was, "That's ok, you can draw with your left hand." So that's what he did.

Dale continued his studies at Anderson University, receiving an Associate of Arts and went on to Winthrop University and received his Bachelor of Visual Arts.

Dale has been professionally involved in the arts for more than 30 years as an award-winning artist, illustrator, instructor and graphic designer. Dale is currently on the board of the Southern Watercolor Society and holds the position of senior creative director in the department of creative services at Clemson University. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and publications.To see more of Dale's work and get dates and locations of his workshops visit
