Dale Arends is a busy guy.
He is the father of five children including twins on the autism spectrum. He is also a Psychiatric Technician, a singer/songwriter/musician, Zen practitioner, actor, and sometimes, he finds time to be an artist.
Dale says, "I love the creative process. Art is form of meditation for me. Often, it feels like I'm observing a process that is creating itself. When I see the final product, I wonder where it came from."
Dale's inspirations include family, patients, books, music, and spirituality.
Dale lives in a chaotic house in Lake Stevens, WA with his wife, Charline, his progeny, various animals and a revolving door of supporting characters.
