Dale works in assemblage and collage, the juxtaposition of disparate images and found objects, usually making an observation of the bleaker side of the human condition.
‘The philosophy of the found.’

Her work can be seen on her website www.dalecopeland.co.nz

Dale regards herself as the most fortunate person in the universe. Rich in everything but cash.
Mathematician, artist, martial artist. (Last year she gained her 5th Dan black belt in Taekwon-Do)

The bird skeleton sees it like in the Tui ads. 'Yeah, right'.
