Big Life Artist – Ali Armstrong

Ali Armstrong Wildlife Artist Truckee

Big Life Local Wildlife Painter Ali Armstrong grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She began her career as a freelance portrait artist and then later transitioned into an art consultant role with a nonprofit that led to illustration work for Bible-based children’s books.

In 2014 Armstrong started Scarce, to raise money and awareness for animal species in crisis. Her work has been exhibited and auctioned by several of America’s most prominent zoos and at Art Basil Miami. In 2018 Armstrong had the privilege of being a featured artist on the show Arteffects. Today she’s currently showing in Reno, NV, Truckee, CA, and Kings Beach, CA.

Scarce exists to encourage responsible protection of the endangered and to never forget the beauty of the extinct. Armstrong paints extinct animals in black and white because they are forever gone. To the endangered, she adds a touch of color, for these there is hope.

Through the creation, we see the creativity and majesty of a Creator. He is a great artist and he made all creatures for Himself. He put this Planet under our care, and we have proven to be poor stewards. Now is the time for action, let us work together to protect the last truly wild places on our planet and the creatures who call these places home. Visit to learn more.
