"Mount Blanca Canvasbacks"
by Cynthie Fisher
About the Artist
Cynthie Fisher has been a professional wildlife artist for over 30 years. She is self-taught, using her degree in zoology to enhance her abilities to create accurate and dynamic one-of-a-kind originals. Living in Montana also influences her work, and she travels extensively all over the world to study her subjects, including 18 trips to Africa. Cynthie also gains considerable reference from her many big-game hunting trips. She spends half her time taking photographs for inspiration and, while hunting, she studies the habitats and habits of her subjects. These trips are invaluable for her work, and each animal has an honored spot in her home.
Her chosen mediums vary. She works in oils, acrylics, scratchboard, glass and bronze. But her works share the characteristics of being dynamic, colorful and often featuring species not often depicted. Cynthie has won dozens of awards from conservation groups like Ducks Unlimited and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Her artwork has graced 17 duck stamps and over 150 different limited edition print designs. She is on the board of the Society of Animal Artists and shows her work all over the country.
