Luce Artist Biography

Michael Dailey studied art at the University of Iowa. In 1963 he became a professor of painting and drawing at the University of Washington, where he stayed for more than thirty years. Dailey created abstract paintings, building up layers of translucent color to create soft, glowing images inspired by the light and atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest.
