Sarah Rutledge Fischer is a figurative artist living and working in Fairhope, AL. With little in the way of formal arts education, Sarah has acquired most of her post-secondary arts education working side by side with other artists in community center classes and figure study groups.
The human figure is at the core of Sarah's work, and her figures rarely relax into passive objectification. The characters in Sarah's work come to the page with a story to tell, each seeking an audience of its own. In exhibitions, she is always pleased to find a community of people who are eager to connect with these stories and characters.
In commission work, Sarah has the honor of telling her clients' stories--the intimate bond between mother and child, a woman's relationship with her pre-mastectomy body, the joy held in a moment of wonder captured on film--each an honor to bring to paper or canvas.
