Cynthie Fisher

Wildlife Artwork

Cynthie Fisher of Hamilton, Montana, is a self-taught wildlife artist, working mostly in acrylics. She has been painting full-time for twenty years, concentrating mainly on depicting unique animal behaviors and interactions, learned from a lifetime of studying and observing wildlife.

She has a degree in zoology, a vital field of study for her choice of artistic interpretations. She also enjoys avian taxidermy, and learns a great deal about anatomy from her subjects.

 

Her favorite activity is big game hunting; she has hunted all over North America, been to Russia and Central Asia, and traveled to Africa ten times, taking many fine trophy animals. The reference she gathers on her hunting and bird watching excursions is invaluable in her artwork, and is reflected in her choice of subject matter, concentrating on the infinite variety of species, both locally and around the world.
