Constance Belle Fisher is a local Clarke County and Shenandoah Valley artist. She has lived in rural Northern Virginia for over 30 years.
Ms. Fisher has an instinctive interest and affinity for creative artistic expression. Her natural ability and talent was evident from early childhood and in the fourth grade, she received a scholarship to attend classes at the Carnegie-Mellon College of Fine Arts. She studied at the Carnegie until her family moved to Baltimore.
She has studied with Gary Akers, Frank Webb, Joe Mayer, Tony Couch, Christopher Schink, and Skip Lawrence.
Usually working on location, she records old barns, quaint towns, city dwellers, country folk, and their unique characteristics with descriptive, romantic interpretation. Ms. Fisher’s art explores light, form, atmosphere, and color; filled with mood and movement, it elicits a response from the viewer.
She recently visited Monet’s home and Gardens in Giverny, France and spent time painting along the Seine River.
Her paintings are in private collections across the country.
She often donates her artwork to fund raising and charitable organizations. Ms. Fisher has always been very active in local community and service organizations. Her current and past memberships include: American Watercolor Society (Associate Member), Baltimore Watercolor Society (Associate Member), Blue Ridge Arts Council (BRAC), Shenandoah Arts Council (SAC), Graphic Artist Guild, Loudoun Sketch Club, Merrick Art Gallery, Shenandoah Valley Art Center, and Washington Art Directors Club.
Ms. Fisher’s award winning art has been exhibited in numerous competitions.
Many of her photographs have been published in newspapers and national magazines. Her art is also represented in the book Reflections of Clarke County, Virginia.
