Melanie Fisher lives in Malvern, Pennsylvania. Having received her B.F.A from the Columbus College of Art and Design, she spent her early career as a graphic designer, and received the 1985 Award of Excellence from the Columbus Society of Communicating Arts. Interested in art history, Melanie received an advanced degree in the field (Ph.D. from The Ohio State University) and taught both commercial design and art history at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, New Jersey.
Having moved to Malvern in 1998, Melanie devotes her creative time to painting and illustration. Much of her inspiration comes from her longstanding interest in patterns. Influenced by such diverse areas as fabric design, glass-blowing, ethnic symbols, and geometry, Melanie’s goal is to create sophisticated compositions which are both decorative and intriguing.
Melanie Fisher’s paintings have been exhibited at a number of private galleries in the U.S., as well as The State Museum of Pennsylvania, John James Audubon Center, PA, and Fairleigh Dickenson University, NJ. In 2013 she founded JAM Gallery in Malvern, PA.
