Born 1951 in Louisville, Kentucky, Giles Fischer is based in
Clarksburg, West Virginia where he was raised. His earliest art instruction came from his mother – herself a locally known West Virginia artist.
As an adult, Giles undertook education in Theology, as well as Art and English, receiving degrees in these fields. After graduating, he taught English and Art for nearly twenty years, and in numerous venues has presented Bible studies for over forty years.
As an artist, Fischer specializes in psychological portraits. His naturalism style is realistic in character – painterly and atmospheric in ambiance.
Giles' works are mostly in private collections. He does accept commissions, but due to the time required for quality work, produces only a few paintings per year. He welcomes clients desiring heirloom-level masterpieces.
