Who We Are
Passion Is Everything
To create true fine art sculpture in the classical tradition, with harmonic composition and portraiture which honors our heroes and loved ones.
What we stand for
We believe in authentic professional creations with honest results. Continuously challenging our artistic visions, we are here to educate, evoke positive emotions, and honor our most deserving loved ones.
I am inspired by nature to create a visual language to communicate with the world around me. My early interest in nature matured to an absolute admiration for one of nature’s most beautiful creations, the human figure. The work of my studio looks back through the history of sculptural forms and engages contemporary art themes and my relationship to the figure today.
Learning to cast figures in bronze was not a linear path. Even harder than learning to cast in bronze was trying to find authentic information about the figure. After the 18th century formal instruction faded, the figure did not generally include discussion of how ligaments muscles and bones anatomically connect so that the body can represent movement, energy and dance. For 12 years I traveled the United States and Europe piecing together my personal solutions to Fine Art Figurative Sculpture.
When I am not in the studio/foundry I am spending with my family. My incredible wife and I have 4 amazing children and we are looking forward to adding a four legged friend in the near future. In 2019 I began studying brazilian jiu jitsu.

I have always loved working with people but this is by far the most rewarding experience. Bringing people together to celebrate those who have made a difference and an impact in this world is profound.
I wear a lot of hats. Mom. Wife. Assistant. Chauffeur. Coffee Girl. School Party Planner. Researcher. Art Critic. Sport Concession Stand Helper. Accountant. And I love each one.
Learning about each person that is being sculpted has been a gift for our family. Our kids have learned what it looks and sounds like to be a Humanitarian, Hero and a Loving person in this world. My favorite part of the process is watching the clay come to life as Chad uses his knowledge and years of experience to capture not just the person but the spirit they carried with them. By the end of each project, the client doesn’t feel like a client anymore but rather family. The unveiling’s are my second favorite part. Seeing the peace, happiness and appreciation on the faces of the family as the sculpture is unveiled gives me goosebumps. We are so honored to be part of each monument and their story.
Thank you for allowing us to create something special for millions of people to enjoy and make the world a little brighter.
I studied business and illustration, finding the financial markets as a means to support my family. However my heart lies in the golden age of illustration, captured and inspired by the works of NC Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, J.M. Flagg and JC Leyendecker to name a few. Diving deep into the culture with my mentors Jane and Ben Eisenstat I remain dedicated to the concepts of rigorous art training and the principles of good design to please the eye of the viewer. The preservation and teaching of the elusive secrets of fine art composition are my goals for our family through our organizations efforts in our training and public and private work.
Doug Krueger aka Captain Doug is a farmer/artist(fartist) who assists Chad at the foundry. He grew up drawing on everything and building forts in the woods of Mechanicsburg, PA. He now lives in a tiny house in the woods of Dillsburg, PA. Doug majored in Illustration at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and unofficially minored in woodworking and printmaking. He aims to be a jack of all trades and has worked as a landscaper, waiter, burrito roller, custom picture framer, t-shirt printer, tick warrior, handyman and organic farmer. Doug tries to listen to the Universe and go with the flow which is how he was lucky enough to find Chad and join the Fisher Sculpture team.
Having a U.S. Veteran family member is major asset for the FS team. His military experience assists our clients when they are conveying the heroic acts of U.S. Military Heroes. Dean also specializes in sculpture transportation, installations and bronze pour operations manager.
Dean served in the United States Army from 1964-1968 as an Electronic Technician, E-5.
Soon after his service with the U.S. Army he began a 24 year career with the U.S. Navy working at the Defense Depo as a machinist/supply technician with Trident Submarine Division.
Dean’s experiences give him a great appreciation for metal fabrication and brings a unique view to each project.
When he retired from the U.S Navy he took on his most important job of his life, Stay at home Pappy. Loving his Grand-babies and sharing life lessons with them and his love of black and white movies has been so rewarding.
