Dale Kirschenman grew up the Sandy Point area near Medicine Hat, Alberta. His paintings derive from his life and experience in the vastness of the western Canadian landscape. He studied painting at The Alberta College of Art and Design and graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting. He is a juried member of the Alberta Society of Artists and an active member of The Leighton Foundation and other local art organizations.

Kirschenman explores landscape in a variety of styles ranging from realism to abstraction. Having grown up on the Canadian prairies, many of his paintings illustrate the vastness of the land, the limitless horizon and the infinite dome of the sky. Weather events like chinooks and thunder storms along with the drama of foothills and mountains of Alberta are common themes in his work.

Dale has taught painting classes and workshops for various institutions as well as those in  his home studio. He is represented by The Collectors Gallery in Calgary and Rowles and Co. Gallery in Edmonton. His paintings are present in the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Civic Art Collection of the City of Calgary as well as numerous private and corporate collections in Canada, the U.S.A.  Living and working in Calgary, the surrounding landscapes continue to influence and inspire his painting and photography.
