Kelly Kunzler grew up in rural Iowa and graduated from Graceland University with majors in painting and sculpture. He is a full time artist living in Des Moines and works with a non-profit called the Least of These Foundation to provide art experiences for people with special needs. He shows and works out of Kunzler Studios in Valley Junction in West Des Moines.
"My artwork is figurative and usually done in black and white with small tints of color and often contains a long drip. I am most interested in the stories and narratives that can be found from a simple portrait."
