Lylie Fisher was born in Australia. Her early artistic exploration in theater, film and experiment media. Upon graduating from art school she commenced a 15 year career with innovative collaborative arts projects. In the mid 1990’s Ms Fisher embraced new media and information technologies, and became a nationally recognized innovator of form and practice. The Australian Government awarded Ms. Fisher’s a once in a lifetime Fellowship, this led to an invitation to join the International Visiting Artist’s program at San Francisco State University.
In 2003 she was awarded a one month Artist in Residence at the historical artist’s retreat at Weir Farm in Connecticut, which is part of the National Parks Service. This very productive experience encouraged her to launch Art Harvest, an arts curator and outreach service for the nonprofit community. Following this stimulating professional development Ms Fisher returned to her studio renewed with vigor to create new arts, curate advocacy exhibitions and continue to refine her own art practice. Ms Fisher was an artistic in residence at the Stanford University Linear Accelerator in 2007-2008 and launched the art and science "In Search of Meaning" series that has touring the US and internationally.
In 2009 Ms Fisher relocated to Washington DC. She recently completed three series that have resonance with the political and environmental challenges facing America. The Life Cycle of Frogs series is a beauty testimony to the fragility of amphibians and The Eye of the Storm a meditation of extremes. Her current work in progress explores anthropological genetic narratives.
