Original Pieces

CS Fifer creates “Art Stories” that integrate renderings of first edition classic books, universal human themes, and detailed historical research to produce didactic and socially engaging paintings.

Her work seeks to stimulate thought and conversation about art, literature, and life. And in doing so, she hopes to bring joyful new perspectives to the viewer.



Commissioned Art

CS Fifer specializes in commissions that create a personalized “Art Story” to capture the essence of her clients.  She conducts detailed interviews to understand what literature, interests, and special events  best represent her subject’s life.  She then translates this information into a thematic “portrait” using classic first-edition books, significant mementos and related allegorical themes to create a unique and personalized piece of fine art.
