Art Inspired by Nature
One would think I could get it together and create a professional artist’s bio. These days it's a challenge to look respectable even in my own living room - a place where my only audience is a lumberjack from Vermont, a pug, and a little pittie.
So, I thought I would take a minute to break from the professional and speak to the honest.
I take photographs to keep me sane. I started Fischer Arts to keep me grounded.
Allowing my eyes to see beauty, symmetry, and light – that keeps me afloat.
Over the years I have explored many career paths. I admit that my favorite employment experiences include: 1) making deli customers huge sandwiches with giant slabs of brie cheese and 2) teaching college students the biology of reproduction – as both have led the consumer on the other end to moments of wide-eyed enlightenment.
I’m often restless. I’ve lived in the city, deep in the woods, and on both sides of the Atlantic. I am addicted to science and facts, but I am quite certain stuffed animals have emotions. I’m crazily attracted to bright colors and shiny objects, but generally prefer to wear black.
Most importantly, there is not a day that goes by without my feeling profound and deep gratitude for the beauty in the natural world, the creatures I share this planet with, and the man I share this life with (to note: he has weird feet, but he is pretty awesome).
Thank you for reading, and for joining me on this journey with Fischer Arts.
