ABOUT  FS

Unique to today but not uncommon 500 years ago, we create and bronze cast all of our sculptures. 

Chad Fisher 

I am inspired by nature to create a visual language to communicate with the world around me.  My early interest in nature matured to an absolute admiration for one of nature’s most beautiful creations, the human figure. The work of my studio looks back through the history of sculptural forms and engages contemporary art themes and my relationship to the figure today.

Learning to cast figures in bronze was not a linear path. Even harder than learning to cast in bronze was trying to find authentic information about the figure. After the 18th century formal instruction faded,  the figure did not generally include discussion of how ligaments  muscles and bones anatomically connect so that the body can represent movement, energy and dance. For 12 years I traveled the United States and Europe piecing together my personal solutions to Fine Art Figurative Sculpture.

Fran Fisher 

I studied business and illustration, finding the financial markets as a means to support my family. However my heart lies in the golden age of illustration, captured and inspired by the works of NC Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, J.M. Flagg and JC Leyendecker to name a few. Diving deep into the culture with my mentors Jane and Ben Eisenstat I remain dedicated to the concepts of rigorous art training and the principles of good design to please the eye of the viewer.  The preservation and teaching of the elusive secrets of fine art composition are my goals for our family through our organizations efforts in our training and public and private work.
