15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

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. 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 19 trips to Africa (so far). Cynthie has been a professional aritst for over 30 years, and has added sculpture and mosaics to her repetoire. 

Cynthie's list of artistic accomplishments includes 18 duck stamp awards, many times featured artist for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Ducks Unlimited, cover artist seven times for Safari Club International, and many others. Her artwork has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for conservation and habitat recovery. She is on the board of the Society of Animal Artists, a member of the Oil Painters of America, the International Guild of Realism, the International Scratchboard Society, 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 just 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 represent a memory or a wish. And I love being able to fulfill that for them!"
