Bale Creek Allen was born in 1968 in Hollywood, CA to Texas-born artists Terry and Jo Harvey Allen. Bale was the first recipient of a four year degree from Boston's prestigious School of the Museum of Fine Arts after only 2 years of study. Because of his tenacity and exceptional body of work that was produced during the 10 short years after leaving the school, the faculty voted unanimously to award him his degree. Bale is the truest definition of an artist, excelling in a multitude of mediums such as bronze sculpture, painting, photography, neon, wood work, spoken word, music and theatre. This aptitude for multiple mediums has given him the opportunity to share his knowledge with others as an adjunct professor and an artist in residency while teaching at California State University at Fullerton, Texas Tech University, University of St. Louis and University of Texas at Austin, to name a few. Like many of his favorite artists, Allen delves into numerous mediums and subject matter, never limiting himself to any one discipline.
