Sally Caldwell Fisher Biography
"I was born in 1951, in Philadelphia. My sisters and brothers and I grew up in Birmingham, Michigan. Our mother was a gifted watercolorist who provided us with good art supplies, for which I will always thank her.
"I majored in English at the University of Michigan. I think it was my passion for literature and raw love of art which led me to develop a narrative painting style. Over the years, my style has evolved consistently, as I have evolved. Change and openness are essential to the creative spirit. I can never adequately describe my art, as it defies easy categorization. Much of it has reflected coastal New England life with an emphasis on the marine. All my time spent on the water with my family has deeply affected my work.
"I never tire of probing into the past for inspiration. My love for the artless self-composition of interacting figures and human body language has always lent a light-hearted humor to the paintings. I feel a genuine affection for the people I invite into the paintings, people who are simply part of the composition, going about their business unaware, as if in snapshots.
"Now, in midlife, I am returning more to landscape out of love for the beauty of the world around me. The human presence is, of course, always implied at the very least. I desire to be a strong unseen presence, involved in the scene before me. Still, never far from the whimsical, I love to paint animals and objects and people. I am more interested in being eclectic than in being easily categorized. I am no classical artist. I am a painter whose work is her greatest source of well-being."
