Liz Chappie Zoller was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. She 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 20-year professional career in Dallas, Texas was in technical illustration, graphics, and interior design. Her 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 Iron Horse painting series is inspired by the high energy, intensely focused working ranch and rodeo horses still used today in Montana’s ranching and agriculture. She has combined these horses with the vibrantly colored typograffiti inspired by the trains traveling along the river in sight of her studio.


Liz is an award-winning artist, honored at the 2006 Trail of Painted Ponies National Competition “The Native Art of Horse Painting” in which 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 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 a member of Mondial Art Academia in Aimargues, France, and an Associate member of American Women Artists (AWA).


Her work is available at Toucan Gallery in Billings, MT, on line at Mondial Art Academia, at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, MT and at
