About J. Fisher

Janet C. Fisher, Artist

Janet Fisher was born and raised in Asheboro, North Carolina. She always had a love for drawing since childhood. Presently she is a legal assistant/office manager at Fisher Law Firm in Troy, NC. Encouraged by her husband, she obtained a degree in Graphic Design from Randolph Community College.

Embarking on a journey to rekindle her passion for art and drawing led her to spend the last 3 years painting with acrylics at the ARTifex Studio School and Gallery. Janet takes inspiration from her photographs of wildlife, nature and culture due to her extensive travels abroad. She strives to capture the character of her subjects through their eyes using light and texture.

Janet resides with her husband Harry and their golden child, Dutchess on Badin Lake in New London, NC. Currently she is creating a series of paintings from safaris in South Africa. She predominately works in acrylic medium but, enjoys charcoal, color pencil and markers.
