A lifelong resident of Winfield, Dorothy Fisher traces her passion for painting to elementary school art classes. After a few years teaching elementary grades herself, Fisher resigned to assist her husband, a well-known Winfield veterinarian, with ranching work and operation of the animal clinic.
Training in classes offered for the community, Fisher credits Dorothy Hinkley and Karen Patton for influencing her work. She specializes in realistic oil paintings, and greatly admires the work of Mark Flickinger and Liz Caton.
“I like to paint landscapes, barns and Kansas scenes,” Fisher said. Her connections with the veterinary clinic led to a special niche. She delights in offering commissioned pet portraits for private clients.
Since the loss of her husband, Dr. Ed Fisher, art has played a very important role in Fisher’s life. She shares her Winfield home with her faithful dog Sophie and tries to keep up with the activities of two grown daughters and four grandchildren.
