This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A full-time painter since 1979, she depicts wildlife and figures in landscape and works primarily in oil and outdoors "en plein air" on locations. She was born and raised in central California and attended nearby Columbia Junior College. Her first career was as a surgical technician, and she said that the experience she had with anatomy later helped with her art career. Following this, she decided to become an artist and moved to Idaho Falls and then to Jackson, Wyoming where she began plein air painting in 1980. She was much influenced by plein-air painter Conrad Schwiering and John Clymer

She settled in Jackson, Wyoming, where she keeps a regular painting schedule and also gives workshops. Her favorite medium is oil and her subject matter includes wildlife, domestic animals as well as figures in landscape.

In 1999, she was commissioned by Wyoming Governor and Mrs. Jim Geringer for signed, numbered, and framed prints of her original painting "Wyoming Treasure." They presented them as gifts to governors at the Western States Governor's Conference in Jackson, Wyoming.

Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Kathy Wipfler, b. 1955, California, United States

Born and raised in California, Kathy Wipfler has called Jackson, Wyoming home since 1978. Drawn to the open spaces and the spectacular scenery of the region, Wipfler finds beauty not only in the landscapes, but also in such scenes as driving cattle and harvesting hay, activities she experiences first-hand living on a working ranch. Her canvas may include a wide variety of subjects including landscapes, wildlife, domestic animals, coastal scenes or rural ranch life. However it must be said, no matter what her chosen subject, Wipfler’s excellent ability to capture a sense of place consistently provides the viewer with an emotional attachment to that particular scene. A plein-air painter, Kathy Wipfler notes in an interview with ‘Southwest Art’ magazine, “There’s no excuse for not going to the source – if you are a landscapist, you go to the spot”. Wipfler’s confidence allows her to take advantage of her emotional response to the landscape. “Painting is a mix of things about what is happening and responding to it,” she concludes. “By working outdoors I directly channel intellectual and emotional responses in color, composition, value and mood.
