Del-Bourree Bach has been active in the arts community for over 30 years. Starting as an illustrator in New York, his work regularly appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, National Review and numerous other publications. Among his other illustration credits are two books by the late Isaac Asimov and work for the New York Philharmonic and Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus. Eventually he decided to devote his full time to painting and pulled away from the more commercial side of art. Since then his work has received over 200 awards in worldwide competition and his paintings are included in private, corporate and museum collections in the U.S. and abroad.

Del is a signature member of many professional arts organizations, including, the American Society of Marine Artists, Artists for Conservation, Society of Animal Artists, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society (Master), National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic, American Artists Professional League (Fellow), Allied Artists of America, Audubon Artists, International Society of Acrylic Painters, The Copley Society of Boston, Providence Art Club and the Salmagundi Club of New York.
Articles about Del and his work have appeared in many art publications including American Artist, The Artists Magazine, International Artist, American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur and Watercolor Magic.

His work is best described as contemporary realism and although he is perhaps best known for his paintings of the sea and the life around and in it, Del does not limit his subject matter, but always looks for new inspiration in the world around him. Basically self-taught, he is a keen observer and although he is for the most part a studio painter, he sketches and photographs in the field and occasionally enjoys plein-air painting.

After 30 years in New York City, Del and his wife Kristen have lived in Mystic, CT now for nearly 15 years.

Support for Conservation:
Living in Mystic, Connecticut, my wife, Kristen and I are fortunate to have Sea Research Foundation, Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration, almost literally in our backyard. We have always been involved with and supported various conservation and environmental organizations, but the committment of Sea Research Foundation is truly extraordinary. In addition to donating our time to their cause and efforts, I have donated several large original paintings to raise funds for their many ongoing projects and I have had the great fortune to observe and paint not only their wonderful collection animals but also their marine mammal rescue efforts.

Spending much of my creative time in marine ares and around commercial fishermen in New England and Florida, I am also very aware of the importance of fishing reform as it relates to conservation. Many of my paintings depict man's relationship to the fragile shoreline and oceans.

One of the best ways we artists have of giving back to the world that inspires us is to donate our artwork. I hope that my paintings have and will continue to raise awareness of the important conservation work we all need to do.
