BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Liz Chappie Zoller grew up with a passion for all things western — horses, wildlife, and rugged mountain landscapes, and her love for the American West continues to influence her artwork today.

Chappie Zoller’s Pearl Snap Studio is located in a remote Missouri River valley north of Three Forks, Montana, where Liz finds much inspiration in the pure light and rich, clear colors of Big Sky Country. Her 20-year professional career in Dallas, Texas was in technical illustration, graphics, and interior design. 

Liz’s unique Iron Horse paintings are inspired by her landscape. High energy working ranch and rodeo horses are embellished with vibrantly-colored graffiti inspired by the trains she watches as they travel along the river in sight of her studio.

An award-winning artist, Liz was honored at the 2006 Trail of Painted Ponies National Competition “The Native Art of Horse Painting” when her entry,Cheyenne Painted Rawhide," won the prestigious Southwest Magazine Best of Show and Award of Excellence.

Her art education includes a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art and Architecture, workshops with landscape artist Frank Serrano, Native American artist Kevin Red Star, landscape artist Greg Scheibel, wildlife artist Shannon Troxler, and an internship with Native American artist DG House.

Chappie Zoller is an Officier Académicienne at Mondial Art Academie in Aimargues, France, and an Associate member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and American Women Artists (AWA).  Her work is shown at Toucan Gallery in Billings, MT and online at PearlSnapStudio.com, ArtworkArchive.com, and Mondial Art Academie.
