Liz Chappie-Zoller is a contemporary equine and wildlife artist, whose mixed media art is inspired by her western American landscape. Each subject’s cultural symbolism is deeply researched, combined with meaningful quotes, then embellished with the urban graffiti she collects (benches) from trains passing through the remote Missouri River valley of her southwest Montana home.
By exploring the overlapping edges of diverse cultures, her work celebrates diversity and connection, helping to better understand that what we have in common is much greater than what divides us.

CanvasRebel believes, as I do, that there is so much we can learn from each other and it's their mission to feature stories to inspire you to pursue your passion and support those who are doing so themselves. So I'm excited to share this interview with you - click HERE to read our discussion about the most meaningful project I've worked on - so far.
CanvasRebel's mission is to create a space for artists, creatives and entrepreneurs to be able to learn from their peers through the magic and power of storytelling. Their love of the storytelling format comes from their founding of VoyageLA almost a decade ago, where they ask folks to share the story of their lives and how they got to where they are today. Through conversations such as mine with thousands of small business owners, artists and creatives, they noticed that there was a need for even more storytelling – stories about our businesses or careers that we might share at dinner or over coffee, but that wouldn’t necessarily make it into our memoir at the end of our lives; stories that illustrate the nitty-gritty details of what it takes to be successful day to day, how to build and grow a client base, recruit, train and manage a team or generate a living from your art.
From the soap you use, the clothes you wear, the coffee you drink to the gym you frequent and art you hang on your walls – there are an infinite number of ways to support the independent artists, makers and small business owners who make our communities amazing places to live and work.
