Liz Chappie Zoller is a contemporary western artist who creates tightly focused, “in the moment” oil paintings of the people, animals and landscapes, filled with vibrant color, bright contrasts and the pure light of Big Sky Country, all sourced from her own Montana life.

Closely cropped images create deliberate tensions against which form, color and light vibrate, to showcase the uncomplicated beauty of western life in a vast and often wild landscape.

Liz Chappie Zoller’s “Montana Life Paintings” celebrate beauty in energetic bites of color, light and life.

She creates her own dyes and combines these dyes with acrylics and stream water. All dyes are environmentally safe. Water plays a vital role in her compositions. Water reveals a softness, an energetic quality to the surface she’s painting upon. Art allows her to be in tune to the energy that surrounds her. This energy she refers to “being in the flow”.
