Eileen Hagerman Nistler
I was born in the beautiful Inyan Kara area of the Black Hills in Wyoming. I left for seventeen years to pursue an education and short career as an architect. Then the magic of Wyoming called me back. I now live in the house that I drew my first paintings in as a child. We live on and operate the family ranch that lies between Upton and Sundance, Wyoming. Much of my inspiration comes from living and loving on a working ranch in Wyoming.

Do what is meaningful, not expedient. – Jordan Peterson
My colored pencil art is realistic. I strive to portray beautiful moments using dramatic lighting as did Caravaggio and Rubens. My education is in architecture and I strive for exquisite detail and quality craftsmanship.
