Dail Kirkpatrick is an abstract artist working in a variety of mediums in her Chicago based studio. Her work explores how color impacts and interacts with emotion. Using organic and familiar shapes paired with lines, colors, and textures, Dail mostly works intuitively letting one mark, shape, or color influence the next. She also works with repetition and multiples to find the subtle variations that can happen within them. Dail hopes to create an emotional connection with the viewer that sparks their youthfulness, vibrance, playfulness, and curiosity. Dail is also a K-12 certified Art Teacher currently teaching 3rd-5th grade art on the south side of Chicago.
