Carla J. Fisher


After 25 years in the financial services industry, Carla J. Fisher is now a full-time fiber artist.

Working in free-motion machine embroidery, she seeks a visceral response of surprise and delight when a viewer realizes the sculpture they are seeing is simply thread. It’s a reminder and the confirmation that one little strand—or person—truly can do seemingly impossible things when challenged to do so. Fisher’s work has been exhibited in five countries and throughout the United States, and she was recently named one of the Top International Artists to Watch by Art Tour International Magazine. Her goal in her pier studio practice is to draw upon the natural inspiration of the water and the unique beauty of Philadelphia to expand the messages of renewal, revival, and the importance of art in a community with reaches far beyond the boundaries of Philadelphia.
