Each painting hints at a narrative based on the way I envision energy, ideas, matter, psychic states, memories and other elements interacting. A blue atmospheric corner may represent a safe haven; a dark corner, a danger zone. A shape may be trying to reach or move through an area, encountering visual and/or psychic roadblocks; an image might disintegrate and be transformed into something new. These encounters might be happening inside a brain, inside a supercollider, or under a microscope; there is no definitive interpretation.

Fisher was born in New York City, educated in Colorado and California, and lived for many years on the West coast before settling in Asheville, North Carolina in 1998. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows throughout the country, including the de Saisset Museum (CA), Bank of America World Headquarters (CA), The National Institutes of Health (MD) and The Washington Cancer Center (DC) as well as in many galleries. Her paintings have hung in group shows at the Asheville Art Museum (NC), the Alexandria Museum of Art (LA), the Sun City Museum of Art (AZ) and the Chicago Cultural Center (IL).

Fisher has received numerous grants and residencies including the Mortimer Fleishhacker Foundation Grant (CA), Asheville Arts Council Project Grant (NC), the Ucross Foundation (WY), and the Ragdale Foundation. Her work can be found in the collections of Capital One (VA), Western NC University Art Museum (NC), the Asheville Art Museum (NC), First Charter Bank (NC), Bank of America (CA), National Institutes of Health (MD) and the University of NC Hospitals (NC).
