Sally Caldwell Fisher paints New England coastal scenes
Sally Caldwell Fisher has gained international recognition for her portrayal of New England coastal life. Painting her surroundings, favorite places or fond recollections, she brings humour to her illustrations of everyday life in rural America. It is her passion for its landscape, affection for its characters and strong connections to the past that has endeared her to New England.
Born and raised with several brothers and sisters in the Midwest, Sally Caldwell Fisher was given watercolours at an early age. Her mother, also an artist, provided her with good materials to create her art. After graduating from the Unversity of Michigan, Sally moved to coastal New England, where she fell in love with its natural beauty, a study in constrasts between the sea and the seasons.
Sally's art has appeared in numerous magazines and she designed no fewer than three event posters for the America's Cup and the Tall Ship, Quebec, in 1984. Her art is included in the permanent collections of the White House, Smithsonian Institution, the Bruce Museum and many others.
Sally constantly finds inspiration from the past and is an avid collector of antique photographs and reproductions.
