Talley Fisher is known internationally as an artist and sculptor who specializes in creating large-scale suspended artwork for healthcare facilities, airports, hotels, companies, and private residences. Talley comes to the art world through her longtime work with her father, the late Rob Fisher, and her deep interest in science and the natural world. Her sculpture often suggests themes from nature, such as birds in flight, soaring clouds, or flowing rivers, floating leaves, and stars. A Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the State University of New York at Oswego in 1996 solidified Talley’s already deep interest in nature. Her graduate work while completing a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon in 2006 gave her the skills to incorporate computer modeling and presentation techniques in her proposals, the ability to create working plans for fabricators, architects and engineers, and the concept of close collaboration with clients, their designers and contractors.
Talley’s studios are located in an historic industrial building in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania and, an hour and a half away, in a barn and one-room schoolhouse in an abandoned logging town of 140 acres along the Susquehanna River.
