Early in her artistic career, Mary Fisher was a tapestry weaver and television producer. In the 1980s she began to design boutique table linens and accessories, followed by constructions of abstract patterns in acrylic paint and gold leaf and then by the handmade papers for which she is most recognized. More recently, she has captured life images in photography and sculpture. Since speaking at the 1992 Republican Convention, Fisher has been recognized as a leading AIDS activist. Her books, including two anthologies of speeches and photography, have received critical acclaim. Her activism, artistry, and authorship are all expressions of her experience and her soul. Among collectors of Fisher's work are President and Mrs. Gerald Ford, President and Mrs. George Bush, actresses Liza Minnelli and Rosie O'Donnell, and the Hearst Corporation.



When my eyes and hands are at work creating a piece of visual art, it is my most articulate moment. I begin a work not knowing what to hope for, except an honest expression that will flow from my soul.
