Dale Kunkel Art, Bethlehem, Pa Member Since July 2013 Artist Statement We Offer Wildlife Art, Deer Art, and Christian Art of Jesus.
Dale was raised on a farm in Wisconsin where he learned to respect the environment and God’s creatures that call the woods and the forest home. After high school, Dale joined the Marine Corps and spent most of his tour as a member of the coveted Marine Corps Band. While on tour with the Marine Band, Dale would spend his off days visiting national parks and wilderness areas in almost every state.
After the Marine Corps, Dale started a career mastering 18th century architecture which required wood carving, and artistic renderings. However, Dale’s passion for the outdoors and wildlife never left him. In the early 90’s, Dale decided to create Wildlife Art . “Learning to create a rendition of a deer was relatively easy, to create real life deer required years of observing them in their natural environment.”
Dale also creates Christian Art that was inspired by the Holy Bible. “My Christian Art is meant to be my way of Witnessing In Christ Through Art.” Dale says.
Dale currently lives in Bethlehem, Pa., with his wife Kim and their son Sean. “My wife is my biggest supporter and finest example of God's grace and beauty.” Dale says.
