Shirle Wempner, raised on a horse ranch, receives inspiration for her art in all aspects of nature surrounding her. Inspired at a young age to fully appreciate the beauty the outdoors has to offer, she has expanded her creative desires to capturing the essence of her subject matter, whether it be wildlife, ranch scenes, figurative or landscape subjects. With her broad brush strokes, palette knife work, and vivid colors, she creates an image that invites the viewer to participate in the final unfolding of the scene before them.
Shirle is a member of the Montana Painters’ Alliance (MPA) which is a membership organization, established by Montana artists to encourage and foster the growing appreciation among Montana’s professional painters in plein-air, studio, and landscape painting.

Wildlife creatures have always fascinated and inspired me, and I find great pleasure in painting all forms, expressions, and movements of these incredible animals.
