Kentucky Muse

Murray artist featured in new Kentucky Muse

Wednesday, April 16, 2014


With inspiration stemming from his boyhood along the shores of Lake Michigan to his Kentucky home near Land Between the Lakes, Murray artist Dale Daniel Leys is fascinated by space and the science of life. The work of this teacher and visual artist is featured in the latest in KET’s Kentucky Muse series, “Dale Daniel Leys: Drawing Life,” airing Wednesday, April 16 at 9:30/8:30 pm on KET2.

Leys started drawing as a toddler and his talent for art was obvious from a very young age. Seagull skulls and fish bones from along Lake Michigan soon made their way into his drawings, subjects that still captivate him today.
In addition, Leys completes onsite drawings and watercolors in the western and southwest United States, Italy and the Czech Republic. A Murray State University professor since 1977, Leys has inspired many students who have become art teachers, gallery owners and artists.
