14th Annual ARC Salon (2019-2020)

Cynthie Fisher

United States

Wildlife artist Cynthie Fisher is nuts about animals. Everything in her world revolves around her love and admiration for all wildlife, which is aided by her college studies in zoology and wildlife management. She chooses to share this love via her vibrant colorful paintings and scratchboards of species from all corners of the world, most of which she has traveled to, including 18 trips to Africa. Cynthie has been a professional artist for 30 years, and has added sculpture to her repertoire.

 

Cynthie’s list of artistic accomplishments includes 16 duck stamp awards, many times featured artist for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Ducks Unlimited, cover artist for SCI, and many others. She shows her work every year at the Safari Club conventions in Nevada and Texas. She is a long time member of the Society of Animal Artists, and currently makes her home in Hamilton, Montana, surrounded by her subjects.

 

“Everything I do centers around animals. I strive to create realistic and accurate portrayals, some of which tell a story. I don’t copy photos, but create my own unique composition that compliments what I’m trying to depict. I believe my collectors are looking for one of two things: a piece of art that represents a memory or a wish. And I love being able to fulfill that for them!”
