Marine and landscape painter in oil and watercolour and ship modeller, born in Gorleston, Norfolk, son of a master mariner. Originally he wanted to go to sea but instead worked at Jewson & Sons timber yard, Great Yarmouth, for 50 years, becoming president of the local Society of Artists. In addition to Norfolk scenes he painted landscapes after trips to France, the Netherlands and Italy. Fisher was a member of the RSMA from 1938, later joined the ROI and St Ives Society of Artists, in Cornwall, and exhibited at RA, RBA, RI and RWS as well as on the continent. His work reflected the tranquillity and hostility of the sea, as in examples offered by Bonhams in The East Anglian View, Lynford Hall, Mundford, 2000. A large collection of his more vigorous pictures hangs in the James Paget Hospital at Gorleston.
